This book arms language arts teachers with the lessons, strategies, and foundational knowledge they need to resolve older students' reading difficulties and increase their chances for academic success. Ideal for use with struggling readers in Grades 6-8 (though these strategies would benefit older students with reading difficulties as well), this book clearly lays out the fundamentals of effective teaching for adolescents with reading difficulties.
