“Finally! A book for K–6 teachers, school administrators, and teacher educators that tackles Structured Literacy in a format that guarantees engagement and learning. Each chapter’s summary of research cuts to the chase, and, most important, is brought to life by compelling case studies and sample lessons. The application questions and activities in each chapter allow readers to test and develop their understanding. I can see educators in myriad settings welcoming this work—from novices in university methods classes to veterans in master’s programs and district professional learning communities. Educators will reach for this book time and again to expand their knowledge of best practices for helping struggling readers become successful.”

—Kathleen J. Brown, PhD, Director, University of Utah Reading Clinic


“We know more about the science of reading than the science of reading instruction. Stuctured Literacy Interventions directly addresses this gap. Chapters present a 'family' of explicit approaches to reading instruction, providing the research base, practical guidelines, and excellent exercises that will promote transfer and learning. Coherent and accessible, the book shows the full breadth of what is meant by Structured Literacy, including applications for specific reader profiles. A significant contribution, this book will be a useful tool for reading interventionists in schools and clinical practice, as well as for courses on reading instruction.”

—Jack M. Fletcher, PhD, ABPP-CN, Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of Houston


“This is an exceptional book that bridges the research-to-practice divide. Practitioners who teach struggling readers will find themselves returning to this book frequently. The contributors are a 'who's who' of literacy experts who focus on key elements of Structured Literacy and systems of language. The chapters are replete with evidence-based practices, application exercises, case studies, and lesson formats. This is the seminal book every educator of struggling readers deserves.”

—Pamela M. Kastner, EdD, Literacy Statewide Lead, Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network


“Spear-Swerling has produced a long-needed work on effective instructional practices that support students with reading difficulties to develop into proficient readers and writers. What sets this text apart from others is how accessible it is while being firmly grounded in literacy research. The book is organized around critical areas of reading and writing, providing an easy-to-follow blueprint for designing literacy courses for graduate students and thoughtful professional development for inservice teachers. Each chapter covers a specific topic addressed by contributors who have conducted research and taught in the area. The book highlights what to teach and how to teach it by providing concrete examples and recommended instructional practices.”

—Timothy N. Odegard, PhD, Murfree Chair of Excellence in Dyslexic Studies and Professor of Psychology, Middle Tennessee State University
