"The importance of Response to Intervention has never been clearer. We strongly believe that RTI, when fully implemented, represents our best hope of building the kind of schoolwide framework necessary for making truly informed choices about the type and intensity of the reading instruction children receive. Our goal for this book is to offer the guidance needed to use these and other tools in an RTI framework. This is a book about the assessment component of RTI. We offer guidance and tools for gathering the information needed in an RTI framework. We have tried our best to write a book that is both practical and specific, that reflects both research and common sense, that is consistent with standards, and that affords guidance in the issues central to RTI"--
This indispensable resource offers a cutting-edge framework and practical tools for screening and assessing K-2 students at risk for reading problems. Provided are critical reviews of 42 specific measures, selected for optimal technical quality and presented in a clear, standardized format. Encapsulated are the scientific basis for each instrument; the components of reading acquisition measured; administration, scoring, and interpretation procedures; the instrument's psychometric soundness and usability; linkages to intervention; source; and cost. Detailed case examples drawn from the author's practice help the reader better understand the type of information generated by each measure and demonstrate how results can be written up in a variety of effective report formats.

Concept Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI) is a unique, classroom-tested model of reading instruction that breaks new ground by explicitly showing how content knowledge, reading strategies, and motivational support all merge in successful reading instruction. A theoretical perspective (engagement in reading) frames the book and provides a backdrop for its linkage between hands-on science activities and reading comprehension. Currently funded by the Interagency Educational Research Initiative (IERI), this model has been extensively class tested and is receiving national attention that includes being featured on a PBS special on the teaching of reading. Key features of this outstanding new volume include: *Theoretical Focus--CORI's teaching framework revolves around the engagement perspective of reading: how engaged reading develops and the classroom contexts and motivational supports that promote it. *Content-Area Focus--Although science is the content area around which CORI has been developed, its basic framework is applicable to other content areas. *Focus on Strategy Instruction--CORI revolves around a specific set of reading strategies that the National Reading Panel (2000) found to be effective. In some current CORI classrooms collaborating teachers implement all aspects of CORI and in other classrooms teachers implement just the strategy instruction component. *Illustrative Vignettes and Cases--Throughout the book vignettes and mini-case studies convey a situated view of instructional practices for reading comprehension and engagement. A detailed case study of one teacher and of the reading progress of her students is featured in one chapter. This book is appropriate for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in education and psychology, for practicing teachers, and for researchers in reading comprehension and motivation.
