Reading Instructional Resources Database - Literary References (Search Results)

The essential cognitive elements of the reading process have been outlined in the cognitive framework of reading. To assist educators in organizing their practice around the cognitive framework, we've created a way to easily search for instructional activities and literary references that specifically address skills and knowledge outlined by the cognitive framework of reading. To find out more about the Literary References section of the Instructional Resources Database, we have provided an overview of the database.

How to use this page

You can perform a new search of the Instructional Resources Database: Literary References to search for more specific references.

Phonics They Use: Words for Reading and Writing 3rd edition
Author: Patricia M. Cunningham
Published: 1995       ISBN: 0-673-99087-7
Cost: $26.00
Supports these Cognitive Elements of Reading:
Decoding, Reading Regular Words, Phoneme / Phonological Awareness, Knowledge of Alphabetic Principle, Letter Knowledge, Concepts About Print

Description:
This book contains a large collection of activities that work on four different areas of reading -- 1. building reading foundations, 2. working with little words, 3. working with high-frequency words, and 4. working with big words.

Notes:
The last chapter in this book, "What kind of phonics instruction will we have?" is a reprint of a paper presented at the National Reading Conference. The positioning of this paper at the end of this book is curious, as it provides a thoughtful and eloquent rationale for the instructional approach -- it would seem better to provide this overview at the beginning.

What Really Matters for Struggling Readers
Author: Richard Allington
Published: 2001       ISBN: 0-321-06396-1
Cost: $28.00
Supports these Cognitive Elements of Reading:
General Reading Information, Reading Comprehension, Language Comprehension, Background Knowledge, Vocabulary, Fluency

Description:
This is the third in a series of books, and while the others focused more on developing foundational skills (phoneme awareness, word recognition skills, etc.), this one goes further to address the issue of developing fluency and reading comprehension skills.

Notes:
The title of this book is somewhat misleading. On first examination, it would seem that foundational skills such as phoneme awareness and letter knowledge and decoding skills do not matter for struggling readers because they are not addressed in this book. However, as Allington says in the preface, he does believe those things are important -- they are only omitted from this book because they have been so thoroughly covered in his other books.

Description:
This is a resource book for teachers of young readers -- it contains everything from the abstract (such as the "eight principles of literacy learning") to the concrete (such as ideas for specific classroom activities).

Notes:
This is described as a companion volume to Guided Reading, but it certainly stands alone. This book focuses more on skill building strategies than Guided Reading does, and this book provides extensive rationale for recommended instructional strategies.
