    E24 Principles of Effective Literacy Instruction With Dr. Seth Parsons

    E24 Principles of Effective Literacy Instruction With Dr. Seth Parsons

    Welcome to another episode! I am very fortunate to be joined by Dr. Seth Parsons in this episode. Dr. Parsons is a professor at George Mason University and recently co-edited a book with Dr. Margaret Vaughn entitled “Principles of Effective Literacy Instruction K-5.”







    The book is an excellent read- the 22 chapters are short, to the point, and do a great job conveying what the chapter topic means for classroom instruction. I highly recommend picking up the book (I bought mine on Amazon), it is a great resource for classroom instruction.
