* Take it from the top---and get to the bottom of longer words and phrases! This highly effective pyramid approach increases accuracy and fluency using a unique format that progressively increases sentence length as your students read downward. Utilizing helpful repetition and multi-age content, it takes beginning and remedial readers through increasingly complex constructions. 136 pages, softcover from Jossey-Bass.
Now in its fifth edition, Reading Pathways (with help from Dewey the Bookworm???) offers an easy-to-use, highly effective approach to teaching reading accuracy and fluency to students of all ages, using a unique pyramid format.
Reading pyramids begins with one word, and slowly build into phrases and sentences of gradually increasing complexity. As the student moves from the pinnacle to the base of each pyramid, the phrase or sentence becomes a more interesting and expansive, and the student's confidence grows with each line completed. Progressively building up the amount of text per line increases eye span, strengthens eye tracking, and develops reading fluency. The book also features more challenging multi-syllable word pyramid exercises and games to further develop fluency and vocabulary. Learning to read long words by syllables removes the fear and mystique of multi-syllable words and helps students build the strong vocabulary so critical for success in reading and writing.
