3.0 out of 5 stars not detailed, but still a gem nevertheless February 7, 2005
By James A
Format:Paperback
Based on Jeanne Chall's stages of reading development, this program is designed to help adolescents overcome their reading deficits. Diagnostic Assessments of Reading is used for assessment. The entire program is broken down into four courses which target the student's word identification, vocabulary, comprehension, and study skills.

One is convinced of the program's efficacy. However, when everything about the program is outlined in 54 pages, one becomes aware that it is practically a show-and-tell without the show. In other words, the book tells you what is being done without showing you how it is being done. Not a program that is easily replicable, to say the least, but still worth emulating, if one has the knowledge and resources--and time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad..can't go wrong with Jeanne Chall December 12, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've said it once, I'll say it again...Jeanne Chall is to the field of reading what Frankl LLoyd Wright was to architecture. These authors were clever to attach her name to the text. Well written for everyday teachers and/or reading specialists. I also recommend as a supplement, Michael PRessley's Balanced Instruction.

It came on time and in the condition indicated. I am a working mon and going to graduate school so I don't have time to go shopping for books. Being able to do it on line saves me time and I have been pleased so far with the products.
