Reading First: The Research Building Blocks
for Teaching Children to Read
This 58-page teacher's guide
provides a framework for using the findings
of the National Reading Panel in the classroom.
It describes the NRP findings and provides
analysis and discussion in five areas of
reading instruction: phonemic awareness,
phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and text comprehension.
Each section also suggests implications for
classroom instruction with examples of how
the findings can be implemented.
