The Teaching Reading Sourcebook, 3rd Edition is a comprehensive reference about 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 with Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS).
The Teaching Reading Sourcebook has been rated by the National Council for Teacher Quality (NCTQ) as an Exemplary textbook.

Why You Need the Teaching Reading Sourcebook
The Sourcebook helps educators get a clear view of the current state of reading education and key literacy concepts. The teaching tips, intervention strategies, and suggestions for English learners make it a must-have for educators at every level.
"The Teaching Reading Sourcebook is one of my best resources when working on effective reading instruction with teachers. I use it to give teachers the What, Why, and How of foundational reading research and instruction. The Sourcebook gives clear descriptions of What is.... phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, etc... Then, it gives the WHY this skill is important to support all readers. And finally, it gives practical examples and lessons to help support the implementation of foundational reading practices. I've been able to use it when coaching teachers from Kindergarten to High School. The inclusion of research and examples, helps teachers gather further knowledge to support their learning.
I also use the Teaching Reading Sourcebook as my guide when teaching "Beginning Reading" and "Foundations of Reading" courses at our local Teacher's College. This is the number one book, along with the Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures, I recommend all teachers buy to add to their toolbox of resources to help them have all the answers they need to teach reading systematically and effectively."
