A second edition of “All Children Read: Teaching for Literacy in Diverse Classrooms,” by Charles Temple and others, was recently published by Allyn and Bacon, a subsidiary of Pearson Publishing.
The book was written by four friends – Temple, Alan Crawford, Penny Freppon and Donna Ogle – from the Reading and Writing for Critical Thinking Project, who jokingly noted that the manuscript may have set a record for the number of miles traveled on the way to production. Temple and Crawford hauled it to Argentina, El Salvador, Romania and the Republic of Georgia before it was finished. Ogle carried her chapters around the world during her stint as president of the International Reading Association, the world's largest professional literacy organization; and Freppon penned much of her chapter from a hospital bed.
Undergraduate and graduate teacher education courses are expected to use the book.
Another textbook by Temple, Crawford, and Jean Gillet will be published in a few weeks, the seventh edition of “Understanding Reading Problems: Assessment and Instruction.”
