Walker Diagnost Teaching Reading _7 Press Reviews

What I like about Barbara Walker's text is that it connects assessment to instructional techniques and materials. Most other books provide chapter overviews that are disconnected. This book brings everything together in a way that supports all readers and helps teachers make effective instructional decisions. Eugenia Mora-Flores, University of Southern California
