Essential Reading Strategies for the Struggling Reader: Activities for an Accelerated Reading Program.
Linan-Thompson, Sylvia; Hickman-Davis, Peggy; Light, Melissa
The activities in this manual are drawn from converging research evidence on the effectiveness of critical components to early reading success. These instructional elements include: phonological awareness, fluent reading in a variety of texts, comprehension strategies and vocabulary development, decoding strategies, and word analysis. The activities in the manual are intended to provide the additional practice struggling readers need to develop basic reading strategies. The manual is divided into four sections: Fluency, Phonological Awareness, Instructional Reading, and Word Analysis and Spelling. A sample lesson plan illustrating how the sections can be organized for a 30-minute lesson is included. Each section of the manual contains an overview of the instructional element followed by a sample lesson that provides a model for introducing the skill. The section overview also discusses progress monitoring. (RS)
