Book SynopsisReplace ineffective drills with easy-to-do games and activities that fit into any teacher's busy day and help striving adolescent readers achieve automaticity in decoding the six basic English syllable patterns. Carver and Pantoja's flexible approach can be used with intensive and regular reading classes, as well as language arts classes at intermediate, middle-school, or high-school levels. Teaching Syllable Patterns meets your Response-to-Intervention goals while engaging learners: Use brief, skill-targeted lesson openers to get an initial Tier 1 assessment of students' needs; Continue with mini-lessons, games, and activities for individual student support at Tier 2 and 3 interventional levels; and Monitor progress with end-of-chapter tests, and determine success after individualized instruction with the final assessment. Easily differentiate instruction in any classroom where literacy is the goal and time is short. The included CD saves on prep time by providing all of the reproducibles, assessments, and color game materials needed for every lesson. With Teaching Syllable Patterns, get the shortcut to teaching fluency and comprehension that cuts time and frustration--not corners--and helps striving adolescent readers achieve long-term success.
