For courses in Elementary Reading Methods.Focusing on the integration of theory and practice, the third edition of Readers and Writers in Primary Grades: A Balanced and Integrated Approach presents a sound learning and teaching literary framework for K-4 classrooms and uses it to organize chapter discussions. Divided into four sections, the text first discusses understanding early literacy development, shared reading, and guided reading experiences, and then developing independent readers and writers. New to this edition are margin notes that indicate how the Reading First initiatives are integrated into the literacy experiences being discussed. Also included is a thorough discussion of phonological, phonemic awareness and phonics awareness and how to teach those principles in primary classrooms.
