Overview

Accessible and teacher friendly, this book provides a blueprint for planning, delivering, and evaluating small-group interventions for struggling readers in PreK-2. It describes how to set up an efficient response-to-intervention (RTI) system that enhances any reading program already in place in a classroom, and that is fully compatible with the Common Core State Standards. Presented are dozens of easy-to-implement Tier 2 intervention activities in the areas of letter learning, decoding, and fluency, complete with reproducible goal-setting sheets and fidelity checklists. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
