Classroom tested and research based, the Small-Group Differentiated Teaching Model provides effective reading instruction to meet the needs of each classroom's broad range of learners. Easy-to-use lesson plans and activities support the five stages of reading - emergent, beginning, fledgling, transitional, and independent - and the accompanying CD features a wide assortment of materials that will help you implement the lessons. In this revised and fully updated new edition of her bestseller, author Beverly Tyner provides: revised lesson plans that include more hands-on student involvement; additional assessments to monitor students' progress; a chapter dedicated to the topic of effectively engaging the other students in independent activities as they relate to the stages of reading development; scope and sequence for word study for each stage of reader; and, much more! Although intended for primary-grade teachers and reading specialists, the book also offers a solid basis for teacher training and reading intervention programs, including Response to Intervention. A companion video series is available for use in professional development contexts.
