Description - Four Powerful Strategies for Struggling Readers, Grades 3-8 by Lois A. Lanning

Research-based strategies for reading instruction often concentrate on reading readiness and Reading First skills for Grades PreK-2, but this important new book focuses on instruction that works for readers still struggling with reading comprehension in Grades 3-8. Sorting through the myriad of reading strategies and skills listed in state standards, local curricula, basal readers, and professional publications, the author here identifies and emphasizes four 'power strategies' worth spending time teaching when the goal is understanding text: summarizing, making meaningful connections, self-regulating, and inferring. Covering these four strategies individually and collectively, the author examines how, why, and when to use each strategy; specific teaching techniques to use with each strategy; what efficient use of each strategy looks like; assessment measures to use with each strategy; and much more .
