Overview

Transform your students into strong, independent readers.

With a strong focus on reading intervention, research-based strategies, and user-friendly techniques, the fourth edition of this vital instructor resource offers both prospective and in-service teachers the best practices for developing and strengthening the literacy skills of children who struggle with reading.

Drawing on IDEA’s Responsiveness to Intervention (RTI) model, celebrated authors Tim Rasinski and Nancy Padak join literacy expert Gay Fawcett to group practical and proven strategies around key reading instruction areas: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Teachers will learn how to organize intervention for diverse classroom settings–including classrooms with English learners and students with exceptionalities–by combining and adapting thoughtful strategies that meet individual student needs within the reading and writing curriculum.

New Features in the Fourth Edition Include…

  • A greater focus on evidence-based research ensures that prospective teachers are familiar with the most recent findings and understand how research translates to classroom practice.
  • An overview of IDEA’s Responsiveness to Intervention model gives instructors practical strategies that can be used to help struggling readers.
  • More suggestions for teaching English language learners further assist teachers in approaching a diverse range of students successfully.
  • Updated ideas for using technology help teachers utilize all available tools to help struggling readers excel.
  • Additional discussion questions at the end of each chapter encourage groups of teachers to share successes and solve problems together.
