What Really Matters for Struggling Readers delivers a concise and balanced introduction to reading remediation and intervention programs and the topic of struggling readers.

The Third Edition of What Really Matters for Struggling Readers continues to focus on helping teachers design reading remediation and intervention programs around well-established reality- and research-based components framing them within the confines of the No Child Left Behind Act.

Nationally recognized scholar and author Dick Allington offers easy-to-understand interpretations of research that support three important principles of effective instructional design and shows teachers how to use a variety of best practices with children who are struggling readers.
