Intended for the classroom teacher, this handy book provides specific guidance, strategies, and tools for helping struggling students, grades 4 and up, catch up with their peers in literacy. The thrust is intervention - specifically, utilizing word study with its hands-on, assessable approach to aid students struggling with the reading, writing, and vocabulary load of middle and secondary classrooms. This text will help you determine student needs, provide you with the strategies to guide each student toward success in content area vocabulary, and even outline ideas for fitting these strategies into your crowded schedule. You'll have the tools you need to help your students acquire the literacy skills they need to meet the ever-increasing demands of school life.
"Your chapters deal with the realities of a teacher's day and demonstrate ways that teachers can incorporate skills and strategies across the content areas. I really learned a great deal from this copy. You have so many excellent ideas that will help teachers." Karen Polk, Northport Schools, New York
"I see the goal as an attempt to answer the needs of knowledgeable teachers and reading specialists working with adolescents in school settings. I think the authors have struck a near perfect rendition of the scope needed to address their goals." Rod Winters, Winona State University
"The authors' in-depth description of classroom management and organization should go a long way toward alleviating fears that teachers have of implementing word study in the intermediate or secondary grades. Teachers of any subject area can immediately begin using these strategies in their classrooms and feel confident doing so. Every middle or high school teacher should have a copy of Words Their Way with Struggling Readers in their classroom regardless of the subject being taught." David Smith, University of Nevada, Reno
