Summary

"If I had to recommend just one book to middle and secondary teachers working to support struggling readers, this would have to be the book. When Kids Can't Read, What Teachers Can Dois a comprehensive handbook filled with practical strategies that teachers of all subjects can use to make reading skills transparent and accessible to adolescents. Bending theory with practice throughout, Kylene Beers moves teachers from assessment to instruction - from describing dependent reading behaviours to suggesting ways to help students with vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, work recognition, response to text, and so much more. But it's not just the strategies that make this book so valuable. It's the invitations to "step inside a classroom" and eavesdrop on teacher/student interactions. It's the student profiles, the "if/then" charts, the extensive booklists and, of course, the experiences of a brilliant reading teacher. This is simply the best book published to date to support struggling adolescent readers!" Gillda Leitenberg, District-wide Coordinator, English/Literacy Toronto District School Board
