Your chapters deal with the realities of a teacher’s day and demonstrate ways that teachers can incorporate skills and strategies across the content areas. I really learned a great deal from this copy. You have so many excellent ideas that will help teachers.

I see the goal as an attempt to answer the needs of knowledgeable teachers and reading specialists working with adolescents in school settings. I think the authors have struck a near perfect rendition of the scope needed to address their goals.

The major goal of this book is to provide specific strategies to improve the reading skills of struggling older readers. I believe that the authors have fully accomplished this goal. They have also successfully provided many great suggestions and activities to help content area teachers make content reading and comprehension more accessible.

The authors' in-depth description of classroom management and organization should go a long way toward alleviating fears that teachers have of implementing word study in the intermediate or secondary grades. Teachers of any subject area can immediately begin using these strategies in their classrooms and feel confident doing so. Every middle or high school teacher should have a copy of Words Their Way ® with Struggling Adolescent Readers in their classroom regardless of the subject being taught.

Well written, lots of good teaching examples, some wonderful insights about vocabulary that will stick with teachers. The teaching activities are excellent and teachers will find them highly useful. I very much appreciated having the great assessment tools. The goal settng guide is also excellent. Teachers won't get this information elsewhere.

The authors have created a comprehensive text for teaching struggling readers, English Language Learners, and even most all of our students how to learn vocabulary and word study. There is a definite need for this kind of instruction, and these authors do quite well in presenting the material for pre-service and practicing teachers.
