"A superb resource, Succeeding With Struggling Students brings innovative ideas and a sense of urgency. Richardson shows what is possible when educators fully commit to high levels of learning for all students and take bold, innovative actions to make success a reality."
-Dennis Sparks, Executive Director, National Staff Development Council

The ideal framework to promote successful achievement for underachieving students!

Schools today are working harder than ever to help ensure that all children can learn and achieve high standards. Marti Richardson, a recognized leader in professional and curriculum development, delivers an innovative, classroom-tested program with planning tools to customize it for any school or district's data-based needs.

Designed around a "Learn-It-Teach-It" cycle, the program combines research-based interventions and immediate classroom practice for teachers. Strategies for "preview" instead of "review" instruction move struggling students beyond cycles of repetition, and scaffold learning to help them learn alongside their peers. With an easy-to-understand framework, the program's flexibility makes it adaptable not only for reading but also for other content area instruction. This highly motivational guide provides:

Essential questions and templates for administrators Scaffolding for a successful school or district blueprintTools and strategies for planning and implementation Research-based interventionsLinks for professional development

With a unique approach that can be adopted or adapted, Succeeding With Struggling Students helps underachievers hold on to the previous school year's learning as well as gain ground to put them ahead and prepare them for new learning. This book gives educators the tools needed to implement the process from print to plan!
