This book reviews the basics of differentiated reading instruction and provides detailed, ready-to-use lesson plans, checklists, and assignments to help teachers hit the ground running. Teachers get everything they need to implement four types of instructional groups over multiple three-week cycles. For phonemic awareness and word recognition, dozens of reproducibles are provided. For fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension, lessons are based on popular, inexpensive trade books. Offering step-by-step guidance to simplify planning and decision making, the book can be used on its own or as a complement to Differentiated Reading Instruction: Strategies for the Primary Grades, which offers a complete introduction to the authors' approach.
