CORE developed this series of literacy guidebooks to give educators practical help in teaching reading and providing effective interventions to students with difficulty reading, including English language learners and students with dyslexia. Both books are newly revised and updated for the latest in evidence-based instructional practice.
The new Teaching Reading Sourcebook, 3rd Edition is a comprehensive reference about the science of reading and reading instruction. Organized according to the elements of explicit instruction (what? why? when? and how?), the Sourcebook includes both a research-informed knowledge base and practical sample lesson models. It teaches the key elements of an effective reading program—phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary development, fluency, and comprehension—in a practical hands-on teacher’s guide. The new edition includes an entire chapter on reading instruction within Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).
” The CORE [Teaching Reading Sourcebook] is an excellent resource. There is great information as well as activities to support each section. It is well organized and lays out how reading should be taught step by step.”

The new Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures, Revised 2nd Edition provides a collection of tests for the comprehensive assessment of skills related to reading. These assessments can help identify why a student is having reading difficulty, determine what the next step in instruction should be to remediate that difficulty, and monitor progress throughout the course of instruction.
The majority of the tests are individually administered. Updated, easy-to-follow instructions are given for the administration and scoring of each test along with reproducible record forms. Interpretation is based on skill mastery and comparison of performance among students in the classroom. Spanish assessments are included for the early grades.
