While reading skills are necessary for life-long learning and success, many students experience reading difficulties and a disproportionate number are from culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) backgrounds. Since students of CLD backgrounds sometimes miss basic literacy skills in the early grades, instruction in foundational literacy skills is critical. This resource illustrates how teachers can improve reading achievement for students of CLD backgrounds by combining research-supported best practices with instruction that is culturally responsive. Readers will find a range of interventions correlated with the five critical areas of reading instruction based on the National Reading Panel Report. Written by experts in the areas of cultural diversity and/or literacy, this book presents classroom techniques and learning strategies for working effectively with students from CLD backgrounds at all grade levels, from primary through to secondary school.
