Applying current brain research, social-emotional findings, and the theory of multiple intelligences to traditional approaches to teaching reading, this exciting new resource helps teachers capitalize on the individual strengths of their students to unlock the door to literacy.

Overcoming Barricades to Reading includes:

* a complete exploration of the theory of multiple intelligences and how its application can improve reading and writing instruction

* practical diagrams, maps, and charts illustrating techniques that will improve comprehension and decoding skills

* helpful strategies for teaching English Language Learners to read.

"Sue Teele has provided a compelling challenge to the stultifying one-size-fits-all approach to the teaching of reading. Her book is a bold and worthy entry in this critical national educational debate." -- Carlos Cortes, Professor Emeritus of History
