Reviews

In this highly readable, efficiently organized volume, Hayes and Flanigan provide an excellent foundation for helping Pre-K-2 learners develop the skills that will make them readers. After following the step-by-step instructions for administering, scoring, and interpreting a pre-assessment, teachers may then choose which subsequent chapters to turn to in order to individualize instruction based on students' developmental levels. The resources and toolkits of teaching strategies make Developing Word Recognition an ideal resource for preservice and practicing teachers. --April Whatley Bedford, PhD, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of New Orleans


Without doubt, this is one of the most practical and useful books that I've seen on word knowledge instruction. The authors supply instructional toolkits--tailored to the developmental needs of students--that target reading, writing, and manipulating words, as well as transferring word knowledge to contextual reading and writing. They present critical information about the interconnectedness of reading, writing, and word recognition in a balanced literacy framework. This is a valuable guide for classroom teachers with many examples to help plan instruction. --Mary Napoli, PhD, School of Behavioral Sciences and Education, Penn State Harrisburg Hayes and Flanigan provide all the necessary materials for a teacher to determine students' needs and design a course of instruction specific to each individual. They explain both the 'whys' and the 'hows' of high-quality word knowledge instruction. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to fully understand the reading/n-/spelling connection across each developmental stage. Teachers who utilize the toolkits in this book will doubtless see gains in their students' word knowledge. --Alisha Demchak, MEd, kindergarten teacher and reading specialist, Burnley-Moran Elementary School, Charlottesville, Virginia In this highly readable, efficiently organized volume, Hayes and Flanigan provide an excellent foundation for helping PreK-2 learners develop the skills that will make them readers.
