Choice Reviews (on the first edition)

“I recommend this book for undergraduate and graduate students and practicing teachers who work with students who struggle to understand or learn from text. The second edition is updated with valuable discussions of implementing the Common Core State Standards, evidence-based practices for English language learners, and the distinction between disciplinary literacy and content-area literacy.”

—Barbara Foorman, PhD, Professor Emerita, College of Education, Florida State University

“There are many good books out there on reading comprehension, and many about students who struggle in learning to read. This book is so welcome—so indispensable—because it manages to address both issues well and at once. If you want to know how to successfully teach struggling readers to understand and appreciate what they are reading, this is the book you have been waiting for.”

—Timothy Shanahan, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Illinois at Chicago

“As a busy teacher, when I read a book, I want it to be full of useful research and activities that I can implement easily and immediately. Teaching Reading Comprehension to Students with Learning Difficulties is just that kind of book. It offers relevant information—organized in a very accessible fashion—that has helped make me a better teacher.”

—Jasmine McGarr, MSEd, elementary resource teacher, St. Vrain Valley School District, Longmont, Colorado
