Appropriate for upper level undergraduate education courses in Reading Instruction. This is an excellent guide for learning about the Direct Instruction method that is gaining wide attention as part of a balanced approach to reading instruction . . . with its wealth of carefully sequenced, highly-prescriptive procedures for teaching decoding, comprehension, content, and study skills. Rather than merely "list" ways to teach reading skills, the Direct Instructional Reading method this text recommends, discusses when a skill should be taught, what examples to teach, how to correct errors, and the relationship among different reading skills.
'A Beard In Nepal 2. Return to the Village' is the story of Fiona and Tod's second visit to the village of Salle, high in the Himalayas of Nepal. They returned to take presents and supplies to the villagers. The book is again full of humour as the couple from Liverpool trek with Kalyani (the village school headmistress) to a remote, hidden valley where her new husband's family live, braving again those incredibly high, dangerous roads through the mountains. This book gives us more detail about the villagers lives, and the lives of the wonderful, happy village children, who live so very differently from their Western counterparts. It also touches on the downside of life in Nepal today; the corruption, the destruction of the forests, lack of electricity, and lack of clean water. 'A Beard In Nepal 2' tells us about Fiona and Tod's encounter with black, poisonous spiders; how they avoided having to eat a cockerel; a water buffalo that snores so loudly it has to sleep in its own specially built shelter; and once again the nightmare of travelling in a local bus through the remote tracks in the high Himalayas. The book also looks at developments in Kathmandu, such as the 'removal' of 10,000 street dogs in the last few months.
