Teaching Reading in the 21st Century: Motivating All Learners By Peter Dewitz, Michael Graves, Bonnie Graves Cover Image


A student-centered focus on reading instruction that fosters students' motivation and passion for reading
Teaching Reading in the 21st Century: Motivating All Learners takes a student-centered approach to teaching reading, emphasizing motivation over efficiency in order to develop students who want to read, and therefore can read. Based on the most current research, this text covers the five major components of reading while constantly reinforcing the idea that motivation leads to students who read widely and deeply, allowing the students' fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension to grow. The 6th Edition has been extensively revised, with a new chapter (6) on selecting texts, significant updates to the topic of assessment, and an increased emphasis on digital texts and other online resources.
