Distinguished author Tom Gunning delivers a new edition of his best-selling Creating Literacy Instruction for All Students that will continue to influence the way reading and writing are taught to future teachers. With its inclusive view of literacy, the seventh edition continues to emphasize methods that have been validated by research and practice while also delivering the basics of all major aspects of reading and writing. Reflecting the author's ongoing, extensive, hands-on work with schools coping with the demands of No Child Left Behind and the implementation of Response to Intervention, the seventh edition stresses effective steps for helping every student become as fully literate as possible.

What Is New to This Edition?

A new chapter two includes a thorough discussion of Response to Intervention and its implications for classroom teachers as well as coverage of the diversity of today's students and what can be done to assist all of them. An increased emphasis on helping struggling readers and writers and English language learners . A new feature emphasizing professional standards near the beginning of each chapter and an overview of the standards on the inside front cover. New end-of-chapter features provide activities and suggest readings to help students meet the chapter's standards. A MyEducationLab interactive website ( www.myeducationlab.com ) created specifically to accompany this edition that includes videos, simulations, case studies, activities, practice tests, study plans, an e-book, and more to help prepare students for teaching careers.

What Do Reviewers Say about the Seventh Edition?

"I appreciate that RTI is going to be addressed [in the Seventh Edition] in greater detail.... There will also be more stress on the English language learner and that, too is needed. Updates are so necessary on these topics." Deborah A. Farrer, California University of Pennsylvania

"Gunning's literacy philosophy is one with which I am most comfortable, both as a literacy teacher and as an instructor of teacher candidates. This text provides a sound foundation for students to build their knowledge of methods and strategies for teaching in all areas of literacy. It is a flexible format, it is comprehensive, and it is easy to integrate into my course content." Beth A. Childress, Armstrong Atlantic State University
