Description

This one-of-a-kind book identifies practical reading intervention strategies based on students' informal reading inventory results.

 

Today's teachers need valid research-based measures for reading improvement, assessments to determine students' reading abilities, and intervention strategies to guide students back on track. To help teachers connect students' performance and evaluation to instruction, best-selling authors JoAnne Caldwell and Lauren Leslie outline practical intervention strategies that are aligned with any informal reading inventory. Targeting the latest research, this edition includes new student case studies, more writing applications, a focus on teaching with classroom materials, and a new PDToolkit (available either with the book or alone). By identifying intervention strategies based on assessment, the book helps teachers and students address difficulties in word identification, fluency, prior knowledge, and comprehension.
