Overview

Strong reading skills are the foundation for school and life. Using the techniques of differentiation, the authors explain in clear and accessible language how to turn average or struggling readers into thoughtful, high-achieving readers. These "A+ readers" have the skills and knowledge to comprehend, analyze, and form a synthesis from any type of written text. Starting with a concise overview of the most current research on literacy, the authors cover seven techniques that can help all readers achieve at high levels: identifying main idea, reading fluency, vocabulary, inferential reading, questioning techniques, informal writing, and reading styles.
