The Structured Literacy Planner: Designing Interventions for Common Reading Difficulties, Grades 1-9


Add your own review!

Overview

Structured Literacy (SL) approaches are increasingly recognized as the gold standard for teaching struggling readers. This highly practical book walks educators through designing SL interventions for students with common types of reading difficulties--word reading, comprehension, or a combination of both. Louise Spear-Swerling offers tools for assessing students' reading profiles and tailoring SL to their needs. In a convenient large-size format, the volume is packed with case studies, sample lesson plans addressing both early and advanced stages of reading, instructional activities, and application exercises for teachers. A chapter on English language structure presents essential foundations for implementing SL effectively. The companion website features a knowledge survey about language structure (with answer key), as well as downloadable copies of the book's 14 reproducible forms. See also Louise Spear-Swerling's edited volume, Structured Literacy Interventions: Teaching Students with Reading Difficulties, Grades K-6, which surveys SL interventions across all components of literacy.

Reviews

"""An outstanding, well-written, much-needed guide to implementation of SL practices in grades K-9. This book offers exceptional guidance about how to teach all related components of instruction; it tightly links lesson frameworks, specific goals and activities, and feedback procedures to individual student profiles. The author's unequaled knowledge of research-based practices, the content of instruction, and the realities of student variation makes this book a 'must' for anyone who teaches reading, spelling, writing, and language comprehension.""--Louisa C. Moats, EdD, codeveloper, LETRS professional development program; former officer, International Dyslexia Association ""The Structured Literacy Planner brings to life the practices associated with SL. Spear-Swerling expertly integrates reading research with the craft knowledge necessary to provide well-informed, systematic guidance for teachers. Numerous case studies are included to illustrate real-world applications. The applied exercises at the end of each chapter provide the type of practice needed to develop skilled SL practitioners. As a text, the book can be used by teacher educators or professional development providers interested in providing practical, case-based training in SL.""--Kristin L. Sayeski, PhD, Department of Communication Sciences and Special Education, University of Georgia ""The book is organized around three common reading profiles and is further differentiated based on students’ stage of reading acquisition, early versus advanced. This detailed information is grounded in assessment data and is brought to life through case studies and sample intervention plans for each profile and stage. The sample intervention plans include components for a lesson and accompanying activities for each component. If that weren't enough, the Planner also includes suggestions for writing instruction! I will recommend this book to teachers who engage in our coursework, workshops, and classroom-based coaching.""--Margie B. Gillis, EdD, CALT, Founder and President, Literacy How ""Useful for all educators, this text is essential for teachers of reading. A map for assessment and progress monitoring, lesson plan examples, templates for student activities, and other materials provide the resources needed to apply SL practices.""--Martha Hougen, PhD, educational consultant and author; board member, Center for Effective Reading Instruction-"
