Reading for Academic Success, Grades 2-6
Differentiated Strategies for Struggling, Average, and Advanced Readers



August 2007 | 272 pages | Corwin
Strong reading skills are the foundation for school and life. Using the techniques of differentiation, the authors explain in clear and accessible language how to turn average or struggling readers into thoughtful, high-achieving readers. These "A+ readers" have the skills and knowledge to comprehend, analyze, and form a synthesis from any type of written text.

Starting with a concise overview of the most current research on literacy, the authors cover seven techniques that can help all readers achieve at high levels: identifying main idea, reading fluency, vocabulary, inferential reading, questioning techniques, informal writing, and reading styles.

This hands-on resource also includes:

-special tips and tools for helping

struggling readers and ELLs

-reproducible graphic organizers

-examples of student work

-classroom activities
