Effective reading strategies that transform readers across all content areas

Without building strong reading skills, students often struggle to perform well in school and in life. Author Karen Gazith, through neuroscience, research-supported tools, and strategies, explores how children learn to read and how it should inform effective reading practices in schools. K–12 educators with this guide will find resources and reproducible tools to implement reading instruction and interventions, no matter the subject taught.

K–12 teachers and leaders will:

  • Learn what neuroscience research says about how children learn to read, why some students struggle to read, and how this knowledge informs best practices
  • Understand the big five of reading and how to apply each element in their teaching
  • Gain strategies that target fundamental reading skills, like decoding and fluency
  • Master instructional approaches like acceleration, push-in and pull-out, and anchor activities to support students who are off track

“This book does more than explain the science of reading. It gives a fulsome overview of structured literacy and the science of reading through a focus on the ‘big five’ as set out by the National Reading Panel so that all teachers understand their role in improving literacy and can take action. The explicit teaching information is evidence based and timely in the current conversation surrounding teaching reading.”

Lindsey Bingley, literacy and numeracy lead, Foothills Academy, Alberta

“This well-written book makes a unique impact by providing both a research base and an application component for teachers and leaders at all grade levels. The content-specific strategies are easy to implement , and the examples and reflection components the author provides effectively reinforce the learning. A useful tool for educators!”
