    The Struggling Writer

    by Janet Angelillo


    View Sample Pages



    Struggling writers need personalized, focused, and assessment-informed instruction and, to this end, Angelillo shows teachers how to provide their students with three levels of support: 1) self-monitoring strategies that enable students to start writing, build writing stamina, manage their time, and stay focused on a topic; 2) classroom community resources which create a safe, supportive environment in which to write; and 3) best practices drawn from writer’s workshop including student choice in writing topics, discovering one’s voice as a writer, and time out to conference, reflect, and assess. 176 pages.

    Extra Practice for Struggling Readers: High-Frequency Words

    Extra Practice for Struggling Readers: High-Frequency Words

    by Linda Ward Beech


    View Sample Pages



    Often called “sight words” because readers need to know them at a glance, high-frequency words can prove challenging for students. This resource offers dozens of practice pages that give older struggling readers multiple opportunities to review and really learn common tricky words—such as which, listen, enough, and answer—that aren’t easily decodable and don’t follow the usual sound-spelling relationships. When students can identify high-frequency words quickly and accurately, their reading fluency increases, and their reading comprehension improves. With repeated practice, students develop automatic recognition of dozens and dozens of words and become more fluent readers. 80 pages.
