Overview

Pre- and in-service teachers turn to this book for a comprehensive, well-grounded look at theory and research, balanced with a practical approach to reading assessment, diagnosis, and remediation that includes 46 sample lessons covering virtually every major skill or strategy. The lessons are described in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step manner, and the emphasis is on strategies that teachers can use independently for developing skills in word recognition, vocabulary, comprehension, reading in the content areas, writing, spelling, and studying. This new Fifth Edition of Assessing and Correcting Reading and Writing Difficulties includes coverage of the critical areas of Response to Intervention and the impact of the Common Core State Standards.

Provost, College of Charleston

Booknews
This practical text details techniques for assessing students and using assessment results to provide effective instruction. Forty sample lessons cover major skills and strategies. Focusing on low- achieving readers and writers, the author emphasizes strategies that students can use independently to improve word recognition, vocabulary knowledge, comprehension, reading in content areas, writing, and study skills. He recommends functional, systematic instruction that exists in the context of holistic reading and writing activities. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
