This research-based book on assessment and instruction of struggling readers covers both assessment and instructional strategies and reflects a balanced view of literacy instruction. Four complete chapters on formal and informal assessment, plus chapters on instructional interventions, including reading instruction for special populations, allow professors the option of using the book for one inclusive course, or, using it across two courses where diagnosis and instruction are taught separately.
This book teaches how to spell correctly and improve spelling in writing.
Word hunting is simple--you hunt for words you need to know how to spell. You hunt words in your writing, words in your reading, and words that interest you. Good word hunters find words or spelling patterns they use often but cannot spell.
When you write a word in Words I Need to Know How to Spell, make sure you check the spelling carefully.
