Comprehensive and evidence-based, structured literacy (SL) approaches place a high value on explicit, systematic, and sequential instruction. This book brings together leading experts on key components of literacy to help K–6 teachers design and target SL interventions for particular student profiles. Chapters identify effective features of instruction for supporting phonological awareness, basic and multisyllabic word decoding, spelling, reading fluency, vocabulary, oral and reading comprehension, and written expression, especially for at-risk readers and those with disabilities. Including case studies, sample intervention activities, lesson plans, and end-of-chapter application activities, the book contains several reproducible tools that can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

Author Biography

Louise Spear-Swerling, PhD, is Professor Emerita in the Department of Special Education at Southern Connecticut State University. Her research interests focus on children’s reading development and literacy difficulties, as well as teacher knowledge for reading instruction; she has presented and published widely on these topics. Dr. Spear-Swerling is the author of two previous books on reading difficulties and is an editorial board member for several journals, including Annals of Dyslexia, Teaching Exceptional Children, and Reading Psychology. A former special educator at the elementary level, Dr. Spear-Swerling prepared both general and special education teacher candidates to teach reading using structured literacy approaches for many years. Currently she consults often for K–12 schools, primarily on cases involving students with severe or persistent literacy difficulties and ways to improve their achievement.
