""The Howard Street Tutoring Manual can teach tutors how to tutor! Through carefully designed case studies of three young children learning to read, Darrell Morris accomplishes the challenging task of conveying the wisdom and craft of tutoring. His approach is informed by a developmental formulation of how children learn to read and write, combined with years of experience working with children in settings such as the Good News alternative school on Howard Street and in schools of rural North Carolina. Here is an author who speaks from a creative intelligence and a rich set of experiences, writes with compassion and directness, and lays out a map to guide tutors in improving the lives of young children. In addition to being valuable to those learning to tutor, it will serve as an excellent text for preservice teachers learning to teach reading and writing and as a useful reference for experienced teachers." --Rebecca Barr, PhD, Professor, National Louis University, Chicago, Program Officer, The Spencer Foundation, Chicago
""The Howard Street Tutoring Manual is an essential tool for developing a successful one-to-one tutoring program. This manual has two important strengths. First, it is based on rigorous experimental research. Second, it contains carefully detailed guidelines for conducting asssessments, developing lesson plans, and implementing effective teaching strategies with struggling readers. The case studies highlight specific reading problems and interventions for those readers. Morris is a highly respected reading expert, and the manual is theoretically based yet presented in a fashion that is easy to read and implement. This manual is a great tool for volunteer tutors andstudents learning to become reading teachers, as well as for experienced classroom teachers and reading specialists." --Barbara A. Wasik, PhD, Johns Hopkins University
"Dr. Morris has the unique ability to write about complex issues in simple language without making them sound simple or trite. Teachers at all levels will find that his three case studies provide important developmental benchmarks for understanding the stages of beginning reading. This text is a 'must read' for anyone who provides reading instruction to beginning readers. It is the one text that my undergraduate and graduate students do not return to the bookstore at the end of the semester!" --Samuel Miller, PhD, Professor, School of Education, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
