I found this really great book. I mean A REALLY GREAT BOOK! I attended a conference a few weeks ago and came across Elaine McEwan-Adkin’s book 40 Reading Intervention Strategies for K-6 Students: Research-Based Support for RTI. I opened the book, took a few minutes to look it over and headed right over to the check out counter. I needed this book- and NOW! Here’s why I love this book!
All 40 intervention strategies are listed in this handy table! Each strategy is then categorized per instruction or target area and THEN the grade level in which the strategy is appropriate is checked! OMG! Is this awesome or what? The book then has a chapter for each strategy in which the research behind the strategy is shared, a clear and concise explanation of the strategy is given and a sample lesson demonstrating the strategy is provided. Just for my own quick reference, I typed up the strategies per grade level. Feel free to download these handouts.

The 40 Reading Intervention Strategies for K-6 Students would make a great book for a grade level team book study.
