Improving Reading : A Teacher's Guide to Peer-tutoring Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literacy series

Description

Originally published in 1994. Without sufficient skill in reading, secondary education is virtually impossible.

Yet many pupils reach this point with reading skills far below those which would enable them to benefit from the texts put before them.

This book gives teachers of 9 to 14 year olds a readily accessible and simple account of how peer-tutoring can be organised to elevate the reading performance of low-achieving readers.

The book outlines the various options available to teachers including relaxed or shared reading with a partner; paired reading using 'reading together' and 'reading alone' techniques; and the more rigorous 'pause, prompt and praise' techniques for those pupils needing more sustained and systematic support.
