Book Buddies, Third Edition: A Tutoring Framework for Struggling Readers by Marcia Invernizzi, Donna Lewis-Wagner, Francine R. Johnston, Connie Juel


This indispensable guide has been revised and expanded with the latest research and guidance for working with learners with reading challenges, including dyslexia. The book shows how reading tutors–including educators, volunteers, and parents–can deliver individualized lessons for struggling students in grades K–3. Chapters offer step-by-step guidance for providing effective one-on-one instruction at the emergent, beginning, and transitional stages of reading, and address the needs of English language learners. In a large-size format for easy photocopying, the manual features 39 reproducible handouts and forms. Tutor training is facilitated by videos of sample sessions (at the companion website). The website also gives book purchasers access to downloadable copies of the handouts and forms.
