Evidence-Based Systematic Reading and Writing Instruction, authored by Professor Young-Suk Kim in 2017, has been recently recognized as one of the top 100 college textbooks in South Korea.
Reading and writing are foundational for learning. Unfortunately, however, many children unnecessarily struggle with reading and writing development. In this book, the author presents component skills of reading and writing, their developmental progressions, and evidence-based instructional approaches for students in prekindergarten to elementary grades, based on empirical research across languages. Contents include overarching principles in evidence-based instruction, emergent literacy skills, word reading and spelling, reading fluency, language and reading comprehension, the roles of executive function and higher order cognitions, written composition, dyslexia and dysgraphia. This book was written for teachers, parents, and college (undergraduate and graduate) students.
