"A smart, 'must-have' book for teachers, interventionists, and literacy coaches. Walpole and McKenna present a roadmap for a coordinated approach to assessment and instruction, while keeping the focus on the needs of individual students. The volume offers cost-effective models of instruction to meet the diverse needs of young learners. The many reproducible lesson plans and other tools are a bonus!"--Jennifer Allen, MEd, literacy specialist/coach, Waterville Public Schools, Maine

"This practical book provides the specific guidance needed for precision teaching that differentiates reading instruction in daily practice. The authors answer the many 'how-to' questions about planning and logistics that beginning (and even more experienced) teachers are likely to have. The lesson plans are certain to be well thumbed, not only as instruction-ready resources, but also as models for creating additional lessons targeting essential skills. This second edition will be a welcome addition to the professional libraries of all educators who want to provide high-quality primary-grade reading instruction."--Kathleen A. Roskos, PhD, Department of Education and School Psychology, John Carroll University

"The book's realistic, straightforward approach to differentiation provides teachers a viable way to embed differentiation into the classroom. The step-by-step plans and assessment system enhance professional learning. Teachers will appreciate how this book helps them plan and problem solve."--Cary B. Riches, EdD, Director of Curriculum and Instruction (PreK-12), Brandywine School District, Wilmington, Delaware -
