"Regardless of how you read, and what you want to read for, I strongly encourage you to consider reading Literacy Instruction. The content of this volume appropriately addresses the complexity of learning to read, and by extension, of teaching students how to read... Literacy Instruction covers a lot of ground in less than 300 pages, for which the authors are to be commended... One of the most significant contributions researchers can make to the field is to empower students, parents, and teachers to make transparent the evidence base for educational practices for students who are deaf and hard of hearing. I am grateful to the authors of Literacy Instruction for pointing us toward that larger dialogue." -- Stephanie W. Cawthon, American Annals of the Deaf
