Dorn and Soffos have developed a researched-based, school tested model that will allow for the successful implementation of the RTI method and bridge the gap between the classroom and supplemental programs. In-service professionals and school personnel will find this book to be a valuable resource and guide.
The authors’ theory is strongly-based on research and study within the classroom setting and throughout the school structure making this book an invaluable tool for the classroom teacher.

Takes intervention to the next level by providing a framework which teachers can use to plan meaningful and purposeful, small group intervention for all students regardless of where they are on the literacy learning continuum.
The next breakthrough for planning and implementing effective intervention instruction. I would definitely recommend it to any educator in the field of literacy instruction.

This book will become a reference that will be used and reused!
I have found anything written by Dorn and Soffos to be great reads — filled with depth — yet comfortable and always causing me to think and reflect as a reader.
This is not your typical one time read book!
These books will be re-used over and over by teachers and others as they build the literacy interventions. The books truly become “guidebooks”.

Interventions That Work:
A Comprehensive Intervention Model for Preventing Reading Failure in Grades K–3
Celebrated literacy experts Linda Dorn and Carla Soffos guide teachers and administrators in implementing effective reading interventions with their Comprehensive Intervention Model (CIM). The framework is based on years of research and features a series of small group instructional strategies designed to prevent reading failure in the early grades.
Paired with the five-part DVD series, A Comprehensive Intervention Model for Preventing Reading Failure in Grades K–3 provides training and support for teachers in learning about small groups as an intervention. Each of the DVDs—Guided Reading Plus Group (Grades 1–3), Assisted Writing Group (kindergarten to Grade 3), Comprehension Focus Group (Grades 4–8), Content Strategy Group (Grades 5–12), and Using Data for Progress Monitoring (Grades K–8)—include two disks of classroom video and resources along with a Facilitator’s Guide and can be used as a Response to Intervention method.
“Dorn and Soffos seamlessly integrate teaching, assessment, and professional development. Their model has been burnished by years of field-testing in a wide range of contexts. Interventions that Work provides the conceptual framework, the practical details, the tools, and the necessary understanding of literacy, teaching and learning. For educators looking for a comprehensive approach to ensuring children’s literacy learning success, Interventions That Work is indispensable.”
- Peter Johnston, State University of New York at Albany
“This is the book I've been waiting for! Linda Dorn and Carla Soffos have provided a true guide to literacy intervention within a systemic approach. The book is grounded in their years of research and instruction and provides both practical and visionary guidance to teachers and administrators who want to make a difference for young readers and writers. Despite many volumes on intervention and RtI, there are remarkably few that provide specific information about literacy instruction and assessment. In this book you will find concrete examples of successful frameworks, schedules, and tools. It is so full of great ideas that I know I will return to it again and again!”
- Marjorie Lipson, University of Vermont
