Early Intervention for Reading Difficulties : The Interactive Strategies Approach (Paperback) (Donna M.
about this item
The authors outline an approach to dealing with reading difficulties in struggling readers in kindergarten through second grade that focuses on analyzing their literacy skills and providing instruction that is responsive to their capabilities, teaching word-solving strategies, and focusing on a set of instructional goals: motivation to read and write, alphabetics, word learning, and meaning construction. They describe how to incorporate the instructional goals and foundations of this interactive strategies approach into language arts instruction; the goal of motivation to read and write; the development of alphabetic knowledge and understanding of how printed language relates to spoken language; the development of sight vocabulary; meaning construction; and the integration of these goals. This edition includes new research on literacy development and the interactive strategies approach, connections to the Common Core State Standards, how to use the approach with English learners, a new chapter on fluency, more on morphological knowledge, examples of instructional language, a decision tree for teaching alphabetic skills, and a companion website.
