Teachers at the intermediate level can now take advantage of the small-group differentiated reading model introduced to the early learning community in Beverly Tyner's bestseller of 2004. This classroom-tested, research-based model supports reading, writing, and spelling as integrated processes. Differentiated instruction can help the reader meet the needs of upper elementary and middle school students as they develop as readers. Here the reader will find: Step-by-step lesson plans on fluency, word study, and comprehension; Classroom dialogue and student work samples; Information on managing and assessing small groups; Assessment materials; Word study materials; and Reproducibles. To enhance the readers use of the small-group model, supplementary word study cards can be downloaded. A companion video series is also available.
