This user-friendly guide has been thoroughly revised to reflect significant changes in the way schools deliver reading instruction and intervention, especially for students at risk for reading failure. Step-by-step strategies target key areas of literacy development: phonological awareness, fluency, and comprehension. Particular emphasis is placed on scientifically based practices that do not require major curricular change and can be applied with students of varying ages and ability levels. In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for ease of photocopying, the book includes 17 reproducible assessment and instructional tools. Purchasers also get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

"Required reading for anyone interested in research-based approaches to informing decisions within a multi-tiered framework. The key elements of reading instruction include excellent suggestions for enhancing vocabulary knowledge, while considerable attention is given to meeting the instructional needs of English learners. What makes this book unique and necessary—even for experts in response to intervention—is the strong emphasis on measurement at the individual child, building, and program levels, which allows readers to systematically evaluate their effectiveness in differentiating instruction for all learners."

"The impressive team of authors has provided a highly valuable update to their manual on reading interventions in schools. At a time when there is a strong emphasis on evidence-based, explicit reading instruction and response to instruction, this second edition offers a fresh approach to what educators can do when a child does not respond. The authors’ problem-solving model is applied to classroom instruction, with a focus on contemporary issues schools encounter, such as student diversity. All educational professionals, including members of interdisciplinary teams who consult with teachers, will find this book a welcome addition to their bookshelves."
- Virginia W. Berninger, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Washington

"A fantastic, ‘must-have’ resource. The second edition includes highly valuable chapters on vocabulary instruction, multi-tiered interventions, and diverse learners. The methods for directly assessing reading problems and implementing and evaluating reading interventions are the best I have seen! It is clearly evident that the approaches in this book are directly responsive to the needs of children and youth with reading problems. Every consultant and educator interested in helping children and youth become proficient readers should own this incredibly useful book."
