Reading Interventions - Yesterday's Theories, Today's Pedagogy, and Tomorrow's Teachers

What's Inside

Many students encounter roadblocks while reading, and teachers may wonder how best to intervene when their students struggle. In this article, Frankel and Pearson unpack the theories of reading that underlie different reading interventions. To bring these "theories of action" to life, they provide examples of programs and snapshots of adolescent readers that illuminate the complexities of reading instruction. The authors also provide practical answers to some of the most pressing questions that teachers have about reading assessment and intervention for students across grade levels.
