Give your elementary school students the tools to become thoughtful, high-achieving readers!

Strong reading skills are critical for students as they progress through the grade levels and face the reading challenges of the 21st century. Using research-based, differentiated strategies, Richard W. Strong, Harvey F. Silver, and Matthew J. Perini show how you can teach average or low-performing readers to become A+ readers who can comprehend, analyze, and summarize different kinds of texts.

Starting with a concise overview of recent research on successful readers, the authors explore seven key areas and corresponding strategies to help all readers achieve at high levels: identifying the main idea, reading fluency, vocabulary, inferential reading, questioning techniques, informal writing, and reading styles.
