Overview

Teaching Adolescents Who Struggle with Reading presents practical classroom strategies for teaching middle and high school students who struggle as readers and writers.

What the reviewers are saying…
“I found [this book] to be informative and helpful, and I appreciate the challenge it presents to me to implement additional strategies as I work with adolescent literacy.”
Professor Roxanne Reedyk, Sheboygan Area School District and Lakeland College

“I learned many new strategies and felt, after reading [the book], that I had attended a highly motivational literacy workshop. After excellent workshops I always come home with many new strategies and ‘raring’ to get into the classroom to put those strategies into practice. This is exactly how I feel after reading this highly professional book.”
Kathleen M. Lennox, Mattacheese Middle School, Yarmouth, MA
