Summary

Remediating Reading Difficulties provides practical, easy-to-implement activities and strategies designed to correct diagnosed reading difficulties. Most chapters describe a specific reading problem or skill, explain possible causes of the problem, and provide an extensive and wide-ranging variety of ideas and instructional strategies to remediate and prevent the reading problem. Remediating Reading Difficulties is also an excellent handbook of ideas for teachers in the regular classroom who wish to teach and reinforce specific reading skills and for teachers working with students who speak other languages (ESOL/LEP students). Brief, clear, student-friendly, and comprehensive, Remediating Reading Difficulties is a simple, easy-to-use quick-reference tool that both pre- and in-service teachers will want to keep ready at arm's length to motivate, communicate with, assess, and promote good reading practices in all readers.
