The collaborative work of elementary school classroom teacher Bev Wirt, elementary school reading specialist Carolyn Domaleski Bryan, and elementary school reading specialist Kathleen Davies Wesley, "Discovering What Works For Struggling Readers: Journeys of Exploration with Primary-grade Students" focuses upon the five teaching principles found to be consistently effective with elementary school students having difficulty in acquiring basic reading skills. The use of anecdotal vignettes and excerpts of student dialogue help to illustrate the application of these principles. Informed and informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking, "Discovering What Works For Struggling Readers" will prove to be invaluable, practical, and applicable reading for anyone charged with the responsibility of helping children learn how to read with skill and enthusiasm.
