Intensive Reading Interventions for the Elementary Grades
Jeanne Wanzek, Stephanie Al Otaiba, Kristen L. McMaster
Packed with easy-to-use tools and resources, this book presents intensive intervention strategies for K–5 students with severe and persistent reading difficulties. Filling a key need, the authors describe specific ways to further intensify instruction when students continue to struggle. Chapters address all the fundamental components of reading--phonological awareness, phonics and word recognition, reading fluency, oral language, language and reading comprehension, and writing to read. The authors discuss the design and implementation of intensive instruction and provide effective teaching techniques and activities. Grounded in the principles of data-based individualization, the book includes concrete recommendations for determining students' particular needs and monitoring their progress.
