For Reading Methods in the Middle School or Elementary Reading Methods and Strategies courses.The second edition of this popular text for grades 4-8 again reflects the author's emphasis on teaching reading and writing from a literature-based perspective and engaging middle-grades learners in integrated literacy experiences. Coverage has been revised to meet the growing need of early adolescents who struggle with becoming proficient readers and writers. Taking a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to literacy development, Combs deftly balances ideas for using authentic children's literature with techniques for making the most of any basal approach-providing a rich mix of classroom-tested models and examples that will serve future teachers well.
