Shanker, James L., Ekwall, Eldon E.


Updated and reorganized to be even more useful, this popular book's twenty-nine chapters divided into six major sections once again provide busy in-service reading teachers the essential tools they need specific, concrete methods for diagnosing reading difficulties and determining how to correct them. The authors' easy-to-read language effectively explains what to do in the diagnostic/remedial process; and twenty-four exceptionally thorough appendices offer hands-on tools for doing it. While individual instruction is clearly identified as the ideal, numerous strategies are also offered for both small- and large-group instruction. Emphasis is on direct instruction, motivational learning activities, and "practice, practice, practice." It also features: Reordered coverage-Addresses decoding (sight vocabulary, phonics, structural analysis, and context clues) before oral reading. Set of tests for phonemic awareness-Includes tests for rhyming ability, initial sound recognition, phoneme blending, and phoneme segmentation. A chapter on phonemic awareness-Matches specific instructional procedures to specific phonemic skills. An appendix, Books for Emergent Readers. Test for assessing older students and adults.Shanker, James L. is the author of 'Locating and Correcting Reading Difficulties (8th Edition)', published 2002 under ISBN 9780130313959 and ISBN 0130313955.
