Tips for the Reading Team: Strategies for Tutors.
Walker, Barbara J., Ed.; Morrow, Lesley Mandel, Ed.
Responding to the America Reads Challenge and the increasing emphasis on using volunteer tutors to help all children learn to read, the activities and suggestions in this easy-to-use book are from the journal "The Reading Teacher" and are classroom tested. It provides instructional tips for teachers and tutors who are collaboratively developing volunteer tutoring programs for struggling readers in the early grades. Illustrations throughout the book indicate in what part of the tutoring session each strategy is most helpful. Sections in the book include: (1) Motivating Readers (presents general principles that develop motivation); (2) Storybook Reading (gives procedures for reading storybooks with children); (3) Reading Together and Rereading (presents methods of promoting reading fluency); (4) Figuring Out Words (describes multiple strategies to help children think about and figure out difficult words); (5) Supporting Understanding (presents methods of supporting understanding); and (6) Frameworks for Tutoring Young Children to Read (describes other tutoring programs).
