Supplemental Instruction for Struggling Readers, Grade 3: A Guide for Tutors


This manual provides lessons for supplemental reading instruction for third-grade students who experience persistent reading difficulties and are at-risk for failing high stakes assessments. Research has shown that these students benefit from instruction that includes all four instructional elements with particular emphasis on the explicit teaching of word analysis strategies. These lessons are not meant to be the primary reading instruction students receive; rather, they should supplement effective classroom reading instruction.
