Are You Prepared to Teach Reading? will help students prepare for state certification examinations on reading instruction and self-regulate their own learning about teaching reading. This book has been adapted from the RICA supplement, a test-prep booklet created for students in the California teacher prep program who must pass the Reading Instruction Competence Assessment. Chapters in the book provide brief reviews of the components of reading instruction. Added to this national version of the book are discussions addressing fluency and English Language Learners. Case studies and thoughtful, diverse multicultural classroom scenarios allow readers to assess themselves with multiple choice decision-making questions, asking what readers know about reading practice. The book will be useful for all students who want to self-assess their fundamental knowledge of reading instruction, adequately prepare for their own state reading certification exams, or assess their core knowledge of literacy instruction if they are engaged in alternative certification programs.
