Description  

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.
