Organized for easy use by classroom teachers and reading specialists, this valuable resource presents strategies for teaching the skills students must master to become competent readers. Its practical explanations help readers understand more fully each aspect of the reading process and the importance of each skill to be taught. In addition, the book offers a wide variety of techniques and activities teachers can use to teach and reinforce key skills while encouraging students to enjoy the process.

Each chapter presents a specific aspect of reading in five sections: describing the skill, identifying the skill need, teaching the skill through techniques and activities, and short, easy-to-use "activities to go". The imaginative techniques and activities are designed to develop skills and provide practice, and include the creative use of books and newspapers, audio tapes, game cards, board games, puzzles, and more. Many illustrations and diagrams are included to help teachers implement the techniques in their classrooms.
