“Few things trouble teachers more than the struggling readers in their classrooms. Beginning teachers, as well as veterans looking for new ideas, will appreciate this easy-to-read book as a resource. Cooper, Chard, and Kiger write succinctly about how to help struggling readers in everything from oral language to comprehension. Every chapter provides ideas for assessment followed by practical instructional strategies teachers can put to work right away.”

"As an assistant superintendent responsible for working toward having all students performing on grade level, I found The Struggling Reader: Interventions That Work to be both informative and practical. It presents an effective, research-based framework for guiding curriculum, instruction, and assessment decisions within a school or district. Teachers will find the assessments, planning tools, and record-keeping templates particularly helpful in preventing reading difficulties and working with students who already have them."
