Rebuilding the Foundation

Teaching reading is a complex task without a simple formula for developing quality instruction. The authors present a deep and thoughtful conversation about what is meant by effective reading instruction for all students. Rather than build on or alter existing models, this book considers how educators and policymakers might think about rebuilding and reconceptualizing reading education, perhaps from the ground up.
