Literacy Difficulties is the only text designed for remedial reading methods classes in which reading, writing, speaking, and listening difficulties are described, remediated, and evaluated for classroom and clinical situations. The purpose of this text is to serve as a primary textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses concerning remedial reading instruction. It is designed to prepare teachers to meet the reading and writing needs of students whose progress is not moving as rapidly as their peers'. Class-tested for two years in courses at the University of Georgia, Monmouth University, and the University of Notre Dame, Literacy Difficulties has proven itself an invaluable text for both students and professors. Every chapter offers new types of lesson plans and assessment tools for classroom and clinical settings containing pupils with a wide range of reading ability levels.Block, Cathy Collins is the author of 'Literacy Difficulties Diagnosis and Instruction for Reading Specialists and Classroom Teachers', published 2002 under ISBN 9780205343850 and ISBN 0205343856.
