For Reading Assessment, Diagnosis, and Remediation courses. With its clear focus on intervention, this informal yet scholarly text offers prospective teachers tried-and-true instructional strategies and interesting activities to develop and strengthen the reading skills of children who find reading difficult, whatever the reason. The authors have grouped strategies around key reading instruction areas: phonemic awareness, decoding, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. They show students how to generalize strategies for use in a variety of settings with diverse pupil populations, how to combine and modify strategies to fit specific needs and particular curriculums, and how to create entirely new instructional packages to meet desired goals.
