Small-Group Reading Instruction: A Differentiated Teaching Model for Beginning and Struggling Readers
by Beverly Tyner
|Grades||K – 3|
Classroom tested and research based, the Small-Group Differentiated Teaching Model provides effective reading instruction to meet the needs of each classroom’s broad range of learners. Easy-to-use lesson plans and activities support the five stages of reading growth—emergent, beginning, fledgling, transitional, and independent—and the accompanying CD features a wide assortment of materials that will help you implement the lessons.
In this revised and fully updated edition of her bestseller, author Beverly Tyner provides
- Revised lesson plans that include hands-on student involvement
- Assessments to monitor students’ progress
- A chapter dedicated to the topic of effectively engaging the other students in independent activities as they relate to the stages of reading development
- A scope and sequence for word study for each stage of reader
- And much more!
Although intended for primary-grade teachers and reading specialists, the book also offers a solid basis for teacher training and reading intervention programs, including Response to Intervention.
