Excellent resource

I needed this book for a class that I am currently taking. It is an excellent resource that I feel I will use even after I complete this class.

Good theoretical and practical guide for ESL teachers.

From Reader to Reading Teacher is a very useful book for both beginning and experienced teachers who want to improve their theoretical knowledge and practical strategies in teaching reading. The book connects reading theory to classroom activities. It encourages teachers to explore their beliefs and assumptions about the nature of reading and provides theoretical basis for better understanding of the background of various reading strategies. The book provides a variety of examples of methods based on these principles and enables a teacher to choose the strategy most appropriate in any particular situation. It also examines the factors that influence both native language and second language reading, similarities and differences in first and second language acquisition, and relationship between first and second languages. This book helps teachers learn how to select appropriate reading activities and plan effective reading lessons for L2/FL classroom. The authors of the book provide the readers with a wide variety of examples of texts used in teaching reading and a selection of activities appropriate for different types of texts. Most of these activities can be easily adapted to any particular group of students and are applicable in many practical situations.Another aspect that makes this book very useful for educators is practicality. Self-assessment exercises and sample lesson plans and activities provided in its chapters helped me as a teacher to determine my professional style. By comparing and analyzing the efficiency of different approaches to teaching reading, teachers can develop their own methods and techniques which would be most effective in their ESL classroom.Its clear language with a number of real-life examples and exercises, make this book is a good theoretical and practical source of information for both novice and experienced L2/FL reading teachers.
