Teaching Reading Sourcebook - 3rd Edition
Authors: Bill Honig / Linda Diamond / Linda Gutlohn Publisher: Arena Press
The Teaching Reading Sourcebook, Third Edition, is a top-rated, indispensable guide to evidence-based, comprehensive reading instruction. Combining the best features of an academic text and a practical, hands-on teacher’s guide, the Sourcebook explicitly covers all essential components of effective reading instruction as recommended by the National Reading Panel (2000): phonological awareness, phonics/decoding, reading fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. The Third Edition has a completely new section on reading instruction within the MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) framework: “MTSS for Reading Success.” The Sourcebook is user-friendly. Its organization and design reflect the elements of explicit instruction (what? why? when? how?). Each chapter includes a graphic, easy-to-understand explanation of the subject matter (what?); a concise summary of evidence-based research with a list of suggested readings (why?); suggested instructional timelines, assessments, and interventions (when?); and explicit, step-by-step lesson models that bridge the gap between research and practice (how?).
Appropriate for elementary teachers, middle- and high-school teachers, school or district administrators, pre-service teachers, college instructors, providers of professional development, literacy coaches
An easy-to-understand overview of reading instruction within MTSS covers the basic components: multi-tiered levels of prevention and support, evidence-based programs with high-quality instruction, ongoing assessment, and data-based decision making and problem solving.
Content closely correlates with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, especially Foundational Skills (K–5).
Sample Lesson Models (how?) provide direct and explicit instruction for evidence-based strategies, practices, and activities.
Helpful graphics, definitions, and simple charts and tables make the subject matter immediately understandable.
Connect to Theory interactive activities for the reader provide opportunities to review and interpret content.
The Resources section provides reproducible sample texts, activity masters, and teaching charts designed to be used in conjunction with sample lesson models.
Suggestions for teaching English-language learners appear throughout book.

Reviews & Comments:
The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) analyzed 725 textbooks used in college reading courses to determine if they covered the science of reading. Results of their analysis, published in 2020 Teacher Prep Review: Program Performance in Early Reading Instruction, indicate that the Teaching Reading Sourcebook was one of the 10 textbooks (out of 725) found to comprehensively and rigorously cover the scientific basis and instructional elements of the five essential components of effective reading instruction: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
