Applying principles from Linda and Carla's latest book, Interventions That Work: A Comprehensive Intervention Model for Reversing Reading Failure, their DVD series, Interventions that Work illustrates how teachers use data to implement research-based interventions-from kindergarten to eighth grade-that transform struggling students into successful readers and writers. The interventions are part of the authors' Comprehensive Intervention Model (CIM), a design for preventing reading failure in the early grades and reversing reading failure in the upper grades. The Comprehension Focus Group DVD (CFG) includes two disks of classroom video, lesson plans, and a wealth of resources along with a facilitator's guide for training and implementing the small group intervention. The CFG offers teachers the training and support they need for learning about "Comprehension Focus Groups" as an intervention for struggling readers and as an intervention for their school's Response to Intervention (RTI) plan.
Features: * Provides a small-group intervention, based on the authors' Comprehension for Intervention Model (CIM), for students in grades four and beyond who are lagging behind their peers in reading. * Consists of a series of 30-minute daily reading and writing lessons designed to promote students' knowledge of genre and text structures through in-depth units of study. * Includes opportunities for teachers to collect systematic data for progress monitoring. * Guides teachers in implementing explicit teaching and concrete examples to assist struggling readers to develop efficient strategies for problem solving in texts and to comprehend the message at deeper levels. * Features two disks: Disk One contains supplemental materials such as the Facilitators' Guide, Power Point Presentation slides, guide sheet of lesson components, planners, Text Map/Writing Guide, and mentor texts for personal narrative. Disk Two contains CFG video lessons in reading and writing based on a unit of study for personal narrative texts. This disk is divided into four chapters with each chapter representing a unique phase with a total of 13 episodes under the phases.
The episodes take place over a period of four weeks.
