While it is true that students who struggle with reading can lose important ground during the summer, it is possible to help these students hold onto the previous school year's learning as well as gain new ground to put them ahead for fall.

Written by Marti Richardson, a past president of the National Staff Development council and a recognized leader in professional development and curriculum development, Succeeding With Struggling Students details the development and implementation process for a summer reading lab. Designed around a learn-it-teach-it cycle, the lab combines professional development for teachers--to develop their facility with research-based interventions and immediate classroom practice--with the specific interventions to benefit struggling students.

With each component of the summer intervention lab blueprint, Richardson offers a description of the model program she developed for her district. For administrators, staff developers, and curriculum directors, she provides a set of questions to assist their district and school teams customize the blueprint to their specific goals, needs, and requirements.

"Marti Richardson's Succeeding With Struggling Students brings innovative ideas and a sense of urgency to the creation of schools in which all students experience academic success. Richardson addresses the key areas of teacher selection, curriculum, instruction, professional learning, and assessment of program effectiveness and provides practical tools to guide readers' thinking and action planning. This book shows what is possible when educators fully commit to high levels of learning for all students and take bold, innovative actions to make it a reality." -- Dennis Sparks, Executive Director
"Not only does her book offer the strategy (preview learning) for attaining that goal, but the book also offers a very specific framework and model for others to apply in developing their own revolutionary innovations." -- From the Foreword by Max Thompson
