Product Overview

Identifying the best way to help students who struggle with reading whether they have learning disabilities, are English language learners, or just need extra support is a challenge for any teacher. Schools can make that task easier with this indispensable resource, a complete guide to addressing each student's specific instructional needs and teaching reading skills side-by-side with critical language and thinking skills. Approaching literacy development as a complex process that unfolds over time, this book gives educators the guidance they need to help students continuously advance and deepen their reading skills not just in the early grades, but into the upper grades as well. Readers will learn how to

  • teach the skills identified in the Reading First initiative: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension

  • teach comprehension skills along with key language skills in vocabulary and syntax

  • guide students in learning literal, inferential, and evaluative comprehension skills along with thinking skills

  • teach comprehension skills for narrative, expository, and electronic text

  • facilitate mastery of reading skills by using strategic, explicit teaching

  • make teaching more effective and engaging through practical suggestions, model lessons, and sample activities for both younger and older students

  • monitor the effectiveness of instruction

All the suggested ideas and approaches are evidence-based or identified as best practices in reading, so educators can use them with confidence in their classrooms. Equally effective as a text for preservice educators, a manual for in-service teachers, and a resource for administrators wrestling with different approaches to reading instruction, this in-depth, accessible book will lead to sharper skills and better outcomes for a wide range of struggling learners.
