Abstract:

"This highly practical volume helps K-8 teachers implement effective reading interventions that support meaningful comprehension and engage students with interesting, age-appropriate texts. Andrew P. Johnson presents a range of strategies for addressing difficulties in the core areas of word identification, fluency, and comprehension. Packed with illustrative figures, the book provides guidance and tools for assessing reading problems, combining and adapting interventions for particular students, planning writing activities to enhance reading, aligning efforts within a response-to-intervention framework, and designing individualized education programs. Informed by current research, Johnson candidly targets "educational malpractice" and helps readers puzzle through the controversies surrounding dyslexia diagnoses and special education decision making. Subject areas/Key words: reading problems, literacy, instruction, methods, difficulties, dyslexia, response to intervention, RTI, teaching, teachers, elementary, middle grades, word study, writing, fluency, comprehension, assessments, special education, guide to reading interventions Audience: K-8 classroom teachers; special educators; reading/literacy specialists and coaches"--
