Description - Fundamentals of Literacy Instruction & Assessment, Pre-K-6 by Martha Hougen
Understand the science of reading and how to implement evidence-based instruction to increase the reading and writing achievement of pre-K-6 students, including those at risk for reading difficulties. Fully revised and updated, this core text covers the research base for structured literacy instruction and practical guidance on the essential components of literacy instruction : oral language, phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, handwriting, spelling, and writing.
