Product Description

Now updated to reflect the changes in technology and the English language, as well as providing updated lists and a new section on fluency and content words, this fifth edition of The Reading Teacher's Book of Lists has been thoroughly revised and updated.

Designed for anyone who teaches reading, 218 lists provide a "jumping-off" spot for developing instructional materials, planning lessons, and creating activities by providing lists of study techniques, test-taking strategies, lists of words to know, punctuation skills, and more.

Lists are primarily organized by topic, including phonics, useful words, vocabulary, content words, writing, teaching ideas, word play, reference, and more; however, the same lists are also organized by grade level, ESL, and other methods of categorization.

524 pages, softcover.
