Targeted Reading Interventions for the Common Core: Grades 4 and Up

by Diana Sisson, Betsy Sisson
Help struggling readers step up to the standards with these classroom-tested interventions. Reading experts Diana Sisson and Betsy Sisson have broken down each standard into its essential skills. Then the Sissons designed and tested interactive lessons that scaffold students as they learn to apply these skills, building their capacity to read and comprehend complex informational texts and literature. Created with the goal of meeting students where they are and guiding them to where they need to be, this is the go-to resource for any teacher with students who need extra support.
How to use this product: Guiding Instructional PracticeIntegrate collaborative activities: An overriding psychological factor that commonly impedes struggling readers is a sense of isolation. They commonly view reading as a solitary task that they must complete alone and unaided. To dispel this mind-set, try designing collaborative activities in which struggling readers work and learn with others.
