Now revised and expanded with more than 50% new material, this book has helped tens of thousands of K-3 teachers to plan and deliver effective literacy instruction tailored to each student's needs.

The authors provide a detailed framework for implementing differentiated small-group instruction over multi-week cycles. Each component of the beginning reading program is addressed: phonological awareness, word recognition, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

In a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying, the book includes 58 reproducible lesson plans, instructional activities, assessment forms, and other tools. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

New to This Edition:

  • Differention 2.0: the approach has been fine-tuned based on field testing, new research findings, and current standards and response-to-intervention frameworks.
  • Many additional reproducible tools, such as coaching templates and the Informal Decoding Inventory.
  • Beyond lesson plans and materials, the second edition offers more guidance for designing instruction and grouping students, making it a one-stop resource.
  • Reproducible tools now available to download and print.

Audience: Classroom teachers in grades K'3; staff developers and reading coaches; teacher educators.
