Every Child Can Read: Strategies and Guidelines for Helping Struggling Readers. Grades 1-6.
Baskwill, Jane; Whitman, Paulette
This book offers a framework called Learner Support to help teachers, grades 1-6, identify and support children who need extra help in their reading development. During 15-minute, one-on-one sessions using real literature, teachers learn to help struggling readers use reading strategies, incorporate sight word review, complete cloze procedures, and more. The book's chapters give information on planning and conducting the sessions, specific strategies to use, vignettes of students with various types of reading difficulties, book lists, sample lessons, and assessment checklists. It contains reproducible questionnaires for the teacher, interview forms, a reading log, and a drawing of space organization for a learning center, among others. Contains an 11-section bibliography.
