This book combines new and time-tested approaches to reading problems and adds practical instructional strategies, assessment tools, discussion of the research, and an informal reading inventory that students can use immediately. The book distills many different approaches to teaching students with reading problems and presents them in an approachable, balanced, and readable format. Early chapters present general information on the reading process, problem readers, assessment, and principles of instruction. Later chapters provide in-depth information on strategies for teaching various parts of the literacy process and concluding chapters detail successful intervention programs and teaching in diverse and inclusive settings. Reading Problems is extremely practical, presenting many informal assessment tools and strategies. Yet it also presents research on intervention programs and multicultural strategies, and extensive descriptions of tests. The needs of adolescents and adults are also emphasized.Richek, Margaret A. is the author of 'Reading Problems Assessment and Teaching Strategies', published 2001 under ISBN 9780205330225 and ISBN 0205330223.
