This comprehensive, hands-on volume will also appeal to teachers who are new to word study, especially those who have students with disabilities in their classrooms. “Secondary teachers seeking practical suggestions for how to help struggling readers will love this book! Word Study in the Inclusive Classroom provides a clear, concise overview of the many ways that adolescents can still struggle to read well into high school. This overview is followed up with a clear explanation of everything a teacher would need to know to start implementing word study immediately. Leko includes lots of helpful examples of word study instruction in a variety of content area classes, including science, social studies, and English. Easy to read and so informative!” —Dr. Kimber Wilkerson, University of Wisconsin–Madison “This book will be an invaluable resource for preserivce and inservice general and special educators.? Few texts address reading instruction for secondary students with reading difficulties and disabilities. Word Study in the Inclusive Secondary Classroom fills this void, providing secondary teachers with the fundamental knowledge and evidence-based practices essential for providing effective word study instruction tailored to the unique learning needs of such students.” —Alexandra Lauterbach, University of Massachusetts–Amherst
