Description - Knowledge to Support the Teaching of Reading by Catherine Snow
While it's now recognized that basic reading proficiency is key to success in all content areas, an alarming number of teachers lack grounding in the fundamentals of theory and practice in this domain. This book presents recommendations for the essential knowledge new teachers need to know about the development, acquisition, and teaching of language and literacy skills. It is the result of the National Academy of Education's Committee on Teacher Education - whose members have been charged with the task of creating a core knowledge base for teacher education.
