Book Title: Book Buddies, Second Edition: A Tutoring Framework for Struggling Readers
Publisher: The Guilford Press
Author: Francine R. Johnston
This popular, practical resource provides guidelines for setting up a successful tutorial program in grades K-3 and presents a field-tested lesson format for individualized instruction. Clear explanations and examples demonstrate how to use the book's wealth of activities and exercises to assess students and build specific reading, writing, and spelling skills. Adding greatly to the second edition's utility is an included 70-minute DVD depicting sample sessions with a beginning reader and a late beginning reader. (E-book purchasers do not receive a DVD but can view the videos online.) Also included are a helpful glossary, a resource list, and more than two dozen reproducible tutoring tools.
