Reading Process & Practice first appeared in 1988 and became widely known as the most authoritative, comprehensive, and definitive book of its kind. It helped teachers define reading in ways that support high-quality instruction. Then she expanded and deepened her insights and specific teaching ideas in The Grammar Plan Book and Grammar to Enrich and Enhance Writing.

It is intended as a practical manual. Having said that, I can see that the main difficulty in using such a manual is that most public school teachers today will be asked to address the No Child Left Behind Act, and that the political sections of Weaver's book may have been rendered obsolete in today's public school environment.

Reading Process and Practice, since its original publication in 1988, has helped countless preservice and practicing teachers better understand the reading process and translate it into classroom practice-so much so that the book has become the essential guide for teachers. Now, internationally recognized researcher and educator Constance Weaver has thoroughly updated her book. Clarifying theory with explanations and examples, as always, Weaver incorporates especially timely information-accurate data, informed critique, and results of often-ignored research-to help teachers counteract government and corporate intrusion into classrooms. Effective instruction stems from a sensitive, informed response to students' needs; the aim of this book is to help teachers achieve that goal.

To that end, Weaver has written five new chapters on assessing and helping readers-enough information to do miscue analysis successfully, to develop a reader profile, and to carry out instructional support for individual readers. To make the book accessible to both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to new and veteran teachers, she has included definitions and concepts that are repeated throughout the book to provide multiple entry points into key understandings and issues. A new chapter describes what a comprehensive literacy program might include and how it might be structured, while practical chapters flesh out specific components of such a program. Finally, the book is designed so that teachers and teacher educators can cluster chapters in alternative orderings, depending upon the literacy programs in which they teach or the nature of the courses they are teaching.

And there's another new and special addition. An associated website contains an extensive bibliography compiled and annotated by first-grade teacher Catherine Compton-Lilly. Numerous sections cover topics that range from being a teacher, choosing books for children, and working with parents to teaching reading in elementary, middle, and high school.

Best as reference book towards assisting teachers in classrooms

Can we say that what works for one teacher in one teaching situation will work for all of them?

What's wrong with teaching reading comprehension? Should children not understand what they're reading? Is "sounding out the words" the only important skill to teach?

What's wrong with Weaver's research? She certainly presents plenty of it, in all facets of reading instruction, from literacy theory to word identification to phonics to miscue analysis to literacy politics to dramatic language arts to dyslexia to special education to bilingual ed. Instead of a point-by-point discussion, Doran gives us a politicized dismissal.

You will not discover the answers to any of these questions if you read Doran's review. You'll be told it's bad bad bad, but why? "My method is better for me"? A book review is a place to discuss a book, not merely to voice one's own personal opinion about a topic.

Reading Process and Practice is a comprehensive manual of whole language literacy instruction. When it discusses research, it gives numerous examples to fortify its theoretical points. It is intended as a practical manual. It is especially thorough in its discussion of suggestions for activities and on procedures for assessment. Whole language assessment, btw, is a lot more thorough and time-consuming than mere testing.

Having said that, I can see that the main difficulty in using such a manual is that most public school teachers today will be asked to address the No Child Left Behind Act, and that the political sections of Weaver's book may have been rendered obsolete in today's public school environment. Still, as a reflection of how things used to be in an era when "whole language" teaching could take precedence over teaching-to-the-test, Weaver's book makes an important historical document.

Constance Weaver's presentation is a one-sided agenda tosupport whole language. The foolishness of the material on phonicsshould appear only on an editorial page. I have been in educationsince 1963 and have found that Whole Language limits students, holdingthem back. In my college reading class which I teach, I pointed outConstance Weaver's approach and opinion of phonics as well as wholelanguage. I have had to teach my own college students how to improvetheir own reading using phonics because they have been"victims" of whole language instruction. Theirreading/analytical ability has increased considerably. When I taughtin the elementary school, my students increased their readingcomprehension an average of 51% over a year. In a 25-hour summerschool program, our 6th/7th grade inner city students improvedcomprehension and language arts standardized pre-post tests 20%average. (We did not teach comprehension or language, onlyphonics/word attack skills.)
I teach phonics/word attack skills aswell as traditional college reading courses. And one key rule: Don'tbelieve everything you read in a book without doing other reading andstudy. I would caution you that the Constance Weaver's book is worthyof serious questioning. Just think: Have you ever heard of a popular,effective reading program called HOOKED ON WHOLE LANGUAGE or THE WHOLELANGUAGE GAME? Patricia Doran, M.Ed. ... Anyhone who reads this bookshould question all of the "research" she quotes. END
OCARO
Weaver uses sound logical arguements to build her case for the socio-psycolingustic theory of reading. She talks about many other theories too, and their origins. Her thoughts are not only explained, but backed by research. She offers examples and activites for teachers. She has changed how I think about reading and how I should teach reading! She is a bit repeatitive, so don't let the huge size of the book scare you. Well worth looking at!
