Essential Readings on Struggling Learners

International Reading Assoc.

“Struggling readers do not need new commercial reading programs—although this is what most schools spend the available money on. What struggling readers need are schoolwide efforts to provide them with more expert and more intensive reading lessons.” So says distinguished educator Richard Allington in his introduction to this compilation on helping students at risk of reading difficulty or failure.

The 20 articles, selected by Allington from IRA’s prestigious journal The Reading Teacher, are grouped around three themes: (1) assessing readers and programs, (2) models for planning reading instruction for struggling readers, and (3) comprehension: the reason for reading. With this collection, you’ll get great ideas to help all students succeed. And each article includes questions intended to spark reflection and prompt discussion—making this resource ideal for school-based book-study groups or teacher education.

To help teachers acquire a fuller understanding of the complexity of response to intervention designs, literacy researcher and best-selling author Dick Allington offers clear recommendations to guide classroom teachers in designing response to instruction (RtI) programs such that struggling readers will develop their reading proficiencies to match those of their achieving peers. Unlike any other book on the topic, Dick Allington provides a research-base that supports closing the reading achievement gap along with implications this has for designing RTI programs. In addition, Dick provides a comprehensive discussion of the factors that inhibit poor, disabled, and second-language learners from achieving and offers a number of research-based instructional strategies and routines for turning struggling readers into achieving readers. Teachers will be inspired and confident to design response to instruction programs!
