From the Back Cover:

Grounded in theory and research, yet highly practical in nature, this book illustrates through a wealth of examples how to assess  students and how to use assessment results to screen students monitor progress, and provide effective instruction.

 

Here are 46 easy-to-follow, step-by-step sample lessons covering virtually every major skill or strategy needed to successfully assess and instruct struggling readers of all ages. The emphasis is on strategies that can be used independently for developing skills in word recognition, vocabulary, comprehension, reading in the content areas, writing, spelling, and studying.

 

The new Fifth Edition has been updated and expanded to include:

  • Extensive coverage of Response to Intervention;
  • Details on the impact of the Common Core Standards, especially in developing the ability to read complex text;
  • Techniques to help struggling readers take responsibility for their learning through fostering executive functioning;
  • Introduction of an excellent instrument that doubles both as an assessment of comprehension and a highly motivational comprehension building technique—Mystery Passages Think Aloud;
  • Ideas for using indexing effectively with struggling non-comprehenders;
  • New ways to assess vocabulary and two programs for developing academic vocabulary; and
  • Expanded coverage of paraphrasing, summarizing, comprehending sentences, using text structures, imaging and using manipulatives, and new coverage of techniques such as close reading.
