Drawing on 40 years of teaching, literacy guru David Booth answers teachers’ real questions on reading and writing.

In this expansive new book, literacy guru David Booth answers real questions from real teachers about turning research and theory into best practice—from phonics to comprehension, from simple exercises to rich reading materials. More than just a guide to reading and writing in the classroom, David writes frankly about what has worked—and not worked—for him in the classroom, and how what looks good on paper may need to be adapted to fit reality. Literacy 101 is both an invaluable handbook for literacy teaching and learning, and a chronicle of personal growth over a career in the classroom.
