Overview

This book prepares professionals and students to conduct one-to-one instruction with struggling readers and to conceptualize and develop tutorial programs. Written by the developer of Chicago's Howard Street tutorial program, the manual is grounded in theory and research and incorporates a range of new findings on emergent and at-risk readers in grades one through three. Readers learn procedures for assessing such literacy skills as word recognition, oral reading, and spelling. In-depth case studies are presented, following the progress of three children at different stages of early literacy over the course of an entire school year. Featuring detailed descriptions of teaching plans, lessons, and informal assessments, as well as word lists, reading lists, and illustrative figures, the case studies show how empirically validated teaching strategies and methods can be tailored to each learner's developmental needs.

"...prepares readers to conduct one-on-one instruction with struggling readers and to conceptualize and develop tutorial programs...features case studies, teaching plans, reading lists, illustrative figures, and much more."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Howard Street Tutoring Manual is the leading text focused on the training of reading tutors. The second edition provides enhanced case study examples and detailed, step-by-step directions regarding instructional techniques and materials for use with struggling readers. This book is a 'must read' for classroom teachers and paraprofessionals desiring to enrich their reading instruction, for volunteer tutors, and for anyone wishing to create, expand, or refine current school or community tutoring programs."—Jessica G. Bevans, Brigham Young University

"This revised second edition is a 'must' for any educator working with struggling readers and any teacher educator developing reading methods or intervention courses. Morris’s strong theoretical background and decades of experience as a reading clinician allow him to expertly weave the 'how' and the 'why' of reading intervention into a text that is sure to be used as a professional resource time and time again. Moreover, many of the basic tutoring components can be transferred to small-group instruction."—Kathleen J. Brown, PhD, University of Utah Reading Clinic

"If you’re a teacher looking for a tutoring manual to use with your struggling readers, a professor seeking a text for a course on tutoring, or a parent or literacy volunteer working one on one with a child, then this remains the first (and perhaps only) book you should read. Morris speaks directly to anyone who has an interest in helping struggling readers."—Sam Miller, PhD, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, School of Education, University of North Carolina-Greensboro

"The Howard Street Tutoring Manual is a 'must read' for anyone implementing a tutoring program for struggling readers. In this second edition, Darrell Morris, a leading expert in the field of early reading, details the practices and procedures for a successful tutoring intervention. Through careful and thoughtful explanation, this how-to manual makes it possible to train motivated people with varying skills to help young children achieve the difficult task of learning to read."—Barbara A. Wasik, PhD, Center for Social Organization of Schools, Johns Hopkins University

Education Review
"I found this book to be a comprehensive refresher in the structure and function of tutoring sessions....Will be quite useful for tutors, and can be a handy reference for trainers in tutoring programs. There is a great deal of useful material....The Manual assimilates a tremendous amount of information in one volume, and for a volunteer tutor who may not be trained in education, it will be a useful reference....The book is a well-researched, incredibly useful resource for working with at-risk readers, complete with materials, books to use, and guidance in assessing a student's progress."—Education Review
