What happens after a formative literacy assessment like DIBELS, TPRI, FAIR, or AIMSweb? How can educators translate the results into targeted interventions and improved reading outcomes? This reader-friendly teaching guide makes the next steps of literacy instruction clear and easy for K-6 educators. Developed by highly respected experts Smartt and Glaser, this book gives readers a specific breakdown of the indicators on today's most popular reading assessments and matches those items with interventions that make a real difference. ""Next STEPS"" is everything educators want. It is extensively field tested during the nationwide trainings the authors have conducted. It is organized by the 'big five' ideas identified by the National Reading Panel: phonemic awareness, alphabetic principle, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. It is packed with practice activities directly linked to each big idea, so instruction is well-rounded and comprehensive. It is based on the latest, most reliable research and best practices. It shows educators both how to teach and what to teach to make students better readers. All of the suggested interventions are quick and creative, get real results with minimal planning, use materials most teachers already have, and effectively target the specific 'trouble spots' that literacy assessments have identified. And with the classroom vignettes and sample teacher-student dialogues, educators will have adaptable models for their own classroom interactions. A must for every education professional who wants to do more with the valuable information they get from literacy assessments, this guidebook takes the guesswork out of intervention and helps transform struggling students into skillful readers.
