Overview

"Struggling readers do not need new commercial reading programs—although this is what most schools spend the available money on. What struggling readers need are schoolwide efforts to provide them with more expert and more intensive reading lessons."

So says distinguished educator Richard Allington in his introduction to this compilation on helping students at risk of reading difficulty or failure. The 20 articles, selected by Allington from IRA's prestigious journal The Reading Teacher, are grouped around three themes:
• Assessing readers and programs
• Models for planning reading instruction for struggling readers
• Comprehension: The reason for reading

With this collection, you'll get great ideas to help all students succeed. And each article includes questions intended to spark reflection and prompt discussion—making this resource ideal for school-based book-study groups or teacher education.
