Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stellar Reviews for the Second Edition!

“Allington has rediscovered the gold from among the innumerable nuggets of reading research ore…he values the reader’s specific interests and needs, but does not overwhelm.”

M. Priscilla Myers, Santa Clara University

“The author uses realistic examples from teachers and classrooms to illustrate effective, meaningful reading instruction with struggling readers. A teacher teaching other teachers is a powerful model for reforming instruction.”

Jo Ann Dugan, Ohio University

A must-have reading resource by nationally recognized scholar and author Richard Allington!

In his unique and expert voice, Allington delivers a concise and balanced introduction to reading remediation, intervention programs, and the topic of struggling readers in grades 2—9. The second edition of What Really Matters for Struggling Readers includes new research on vocabulary development and expanded research on fluency and comprehension. It continues to focus on helping teachers design reading remediation and intervention programs around well-established reality- and research-based components, framing them within the confines of the No Child Left Behind Act.

What Really Matters for Struggling Readers’ easy-to-understand interpretations of research that support key principles of effective instructional design, along with its guidance for teachers on how to use a variety of best practices with children who are struggling readers, have made this a best-selling book!

Book News Annotation:

US students rank 15th in reading--dead last--of all the English-speaking nations on the list provided by Allington (U. of Tennessee, Knoxville). In this text for potential researchers, he focuses on what the US needs to learn if it is to have half a chance at meeting the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. He describes the characteristics of scientifically-based reading research and some of its most significant subjects, and he discusses developing instruction for struggling readers, improving classroom instruction and access to intensive instruction, expanding available instruction time, and making support available for older struggling readers.
