Explore the challenges and achievements of struggling students with the guidance of Janine Bixler and her colleagues as they illustrate how real teachers take on the responsibility of isolating children’s reading problems and help children overcome them.  Through authentic classroom cases and examples, Janine highlights eight different reading problems and then walks readers through each teacher’s process for negotiating learning.  She organizes the cases in the same predictable format, beginning with assessment and followed by an instructional decision making process, highlighting how teachers help children reach their literacy potential.
