Is anyone familiar with Beverly Tyner's Small Group Reading Instruction-A Differentiated Teaching Model for Beginning and Struggling Readers? She also wrote one for Intermediate Readers. I'd like to hear some opinions.
Thanks!

My school district just adopted Tyner's program for this coming year. I'm a little nervous about it. From what I hear from a friend who piloted it last year, it's great. A little more work just to get it going, but once you get it going, it's very easy and the kids like it.

Can you tell me more about this. I have never heard of this programme. Is it a book? A boxed programme?

It's a book. I was a best seller in the IRA catalog. I'm a reading specialist/literacy coach and purchased it along with several other recommended books. You can read more about it on amazon.com and/or IRAs website. I purchased with the hope/thought that it might offer a fresh take on a "structure" for guided practice with struggling readers. Still familiarizing myself with it which is why I'd like to hear from anyone who might have used it I'm happy to share more as I learn more.

Thanks for the info. I will checkout IRA website. I am also a literacy coach and was wondering if it was something that would help me working with struggling readers and their teachers.

I have the book and I really like it. I bought it when I moved from pre-k to 1st. It does give very clear ideas on what to do with each level of reader. I felt better about teaching guided reading after that. I had only taught reading in my student teaching in kindergarten 3 years previous to moving to 1st. I had a lot of literacy training (MLPP Michigan Literachy Progress Profile)through professional development, but this is really laid out nicely for each stage of reading. It also gives a sample lesson plan filled out as well as sheets you can copy and use.

I loved it for those struggling readers, but it also has just as much information for transitional and fluent readers. We actually ended up doing a book study on this after I showed it to a couple of other teachers and our Title I staff. It is worth the money - I am hoping to talk our literacy coach into getting the CD that goes with it, that way I don't have to keep damaging my book in the copier, I can print off a master of the work in the back.

There is a school trying to use this program and not many of the teachers are happy. There is another program based on phonographix out of Michigan you might try. Evidence Based Literacy Instruction or EBLI. It is great.

Our school district adopted this as our Small Group Reading curriculum 8 years ago. Since then, our Reading scores have consistently dropped. This program teaches sight reading. Matching word families does not equip students with the proper toolbox to decode unfamiliar words out of context. Unfortunately, we're now faced with middle and high schoolers with no decoding ability. According to this program "c-a-t" only says "cat" because it LOOKS a lot like "hat, sat, mat and fat.
The students enjoy the repetition of the lessons but the teachers hate the lack of actual phonics skills taught.
