First Aid for Readers supports techniques taught by teachers of the middle and upper grades by supplying the reader with a step-by-step guide that enhances before, during, and after reading skills. These strategies follow the best practices that have been researched, studied, and taught by national, state, and international reading professionals.
The easy to follow format allows readers to match their individual problems with the ones listed in the table of contents. First Aid for Readers gives explanations, activities, examples, diagrams, and ready to use graphic organizers that will help the reader find answers to reading problems, decode unknown vocabulary, analyze poetry, text, newspapers, write summaries, and more.
