You mentioned that you work with struggling high school students. While my experience does not go beyond that of a fifth grade level, I believe that the book I mention in my post, "Day-to-Day Assessment in the Reading Workshop: Making Informed Instructional Decisions in Grades 3–6" by Franki Sibberson and Karen Szymusiak could lend itself to students in middle school as well if the teacher is running a reading workshop in her classroom. Since your struggling high school students may still be at a middle school reading level, I still think the ideas in this book are very worthwhile.
While I am certainly not the right person to give advice about teaching high school students, I would like to think that the assessment tips and tools I mention in this post would be useful for any teacher running a reading workshop.
