Annotation: Burkins and Yaris, writers, literacy consultants, and former teachers, argue that teachers take on too much of the work in reading instruction by telling students what to think, when they are having difficulties, how to resolve a problem, and when to turn the page, and that scaffolding creates a process that requires continued support, rather than creating independence in students. They explain how read-aloud, shared reading, guided reading, and independent reading should look in classrooms where teachers let students do more of the work, to create more independence and proficiency. They describe the reading process and a model for visualizing what reading independence and proficiency look like, then each of the four instructional contexts, how each has been traditionally used, ideas for adjusting it, what makes it unique and important, how it supports reading growth and development, and how each can look and guidelines for planning lessons. Each chapter includes suggestions for difficult aspects, discussion of misconceptions, and classroom snapshots. The final chapter addresses combining text, language, and instructional context.
