This book, designed as a reference tool, fills a void by providing a concise overview of the teaching practices of literacy, helping readers examine and evaluate teaching strategies and techniques in the areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, and visualizing. Jonson's book follows a user-friendly format that includes: o Names of specific strategies o Who would use a given strategy o When and why a strategy should be used o How a strategy should be implemented o Alternative implementation ideas o Supplies required to implement the strategies o Figures and illustrations Jonson brings more than 30 years of experience as a teacher, reading specialist, principal, staff developer, and professor of teacher education to the project. This excellent resource not only synthesizes the current research and theory of best instructional practices, but also presents information in a clear, logical, and accessible manner for practitioners.
