In The New Art and Science of Teaching Reading, Julia A. Simms and Robert J. Marzano articulate an incredibly well-researched model of reading development based on The New Art and Science of Teaching framework created by Robert J. Marzano. The framework, a compelling new method of planning and implementing general K–12 instruction, can be applied to specific content areas, and in this book, Simms and Marzano apply it to reading. The authors present a reading model structured around five topics—(1) foundational skills, (2) word recognition, (3) fluency, (4) vocabulary, and (5) comprehension—and relate that model to the forty-three elements of effective teaching in Marzano’s The New Art and Science of Teaching framework. The authors’ reading-specific model offers a wide-ranging approach that addresses how to articulate content in the reading classroom, provides specific instructional strategies for the teaching of reading, and addresses reading-related issues that might arise in the classroom. In this book, readers will develop their own powerful new methods of instruction in the reading classroom based on the general structure of The New Art and Science of Teaching framework.
