At a time when the need for solid, research-based literacy instruction has never been more critical, this updated edition of Building a Knowledge Base in Reading brings you a broad and balanced perspective to help you build instruction around the best possible evidence-based reading research.

Authors Jane Braunger and Jan Patricia Lewis have compiled an array of research that updates the findings documented in the first edition and also addresses the instructional implications of key studies published since then. The new edition features

  • expanded core understandings with implications for students at all levels,
  • teacher resources for translating core understandings into classroom practice, and
  • summaries of the research presented in each chapter to help you pull together key ideas.

This book strives to keep open the dialogue between researchers, educators, and policymakers. Using the varied research presented, you can make sound decisions about instructional programs and materials.
