The Howard Street Tutoring Manual: Teaching At-risk Readers in the Primary Grades
This book prepares professionals and students to conduct one-to-one instruction with struggling readers and to conceptualize and develop effective tutorial programs. Written by the developer of Chicago's Howard Street tutorial program, the manual is grounded in theory and research and incorporates a range of new findings on emergent and at-risk readers in grades 1 through 3. Readers learn procedures for assessing word recognition, oral reading, and spelling, facilitated by reproducible assessment tools and scoring sheets. In-depth case studies are then presented, following the progress of three children at different stages of early literacy over the course of an entire school year. Featuring detailed descriptions of teaching plans, lessons, and informal assessments, as well as word lists, reading lists, and illustrative figures, the manual shows how empirically validated teaching strategies and methods can be tailored to each learner's developmental needs.
