This program will help students aged 8–13 years who are at risk with their reading and writing. The extremely useful Teacher Manual and Student Log are designed to assist teachers and tutors as they work beyond the early years of schooling. Older students may have more deeply embedded confusions and diminishing self-esteem as they fall further behind their peers. The program does what busy teachers don’t have time to do; it brings together many teaching methods and assessment techniques already in use and modifies them for one-to-one and small group instructional use.
The Student Log has been designed to strengthen students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes towards reading and writing and to record this development. The log pages are reproducible so that teachers can compile individual programs and profiles for students. The dialogue between teachers and students that the log creates is a crucial component of Success with Reading & Writing.
