Connect students' performance on informal reading inventories to immediate practical intervention strategies! Written with the firm belief that a student's performance on any evaluation instrument should be specifically connected to instruction in the intervention sessions that follow, this newly revised book provides a clear understanding of how to tie assessment to intervention. The renowned authors of theQualitative Reading Inventory (QRI),JoAnne Caldwell and Lauren Leslie, offer workable activities for intervention sessions based upon specific assessment results in every chapter, with lesson plan structures suitable for individual, small group, and full class settings. The specific instructional suggestions address difficulties in word identification, fluency, prior knowledge, and comprehension revealed by theQRIor other IRI, giving teachers in all grades the training they need to match their intervention to students' needs. "[A]n excellent resource…[for] both the general education and special education classroom. It provides the reader with background information [and] research as well as the tools and strategies to help readers in their classroom break the code to become…better reader[s]."
