Struggling to read has no boundaries as it plagues students of every socio-economic status, ethnographic background, and geographic area. When combined with the notion that reading serves as a foundation to all subject areas, it is a necessity that we delve deeper into how classroom teachers and specialists remediate reading difficulties of students of all ages. Areas of particular interest in this issue include:
  • K-12 reading strategies
  • Small group instruction
  • ESL learners
  • Suburban/Urban/Rural students
  • Reading disabilities
  • Assessment/Evaluation
  • Intrinsic/Extrinsic motivators
  • Pre-service teacher tutoring
  • Student-student instruction
