"Every classroom has readers who struggle with texts. Whatever their challenges, it is our job as teachers to help them negotiate the texts of their world."
Classroom-ready solutions to support K-6 striving readers at your fingertips
In elementary classrooms across America, there are increasing numbers of students with specialized learning needs-striving readers who need additional support to reach their academic potential. Linda Hoyt and colleagues support these learners with strategic interventions and tools in this easy-to-use handbook for whole class, small group, and one-to-one instruction.

- Side-by-Side Observations-portraits of striving readers and the tools and solutions that will benefit their development
- Solutions-a wealth of instructional tools and scaffolds to support K-6 readers
- Formative assessment tools-reading records, observation checklists, story maps, and more-also available in a customizable format on the accompanying CD-ROM.
