3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of the U.S. Department of Education's America Reads Challenge is that all children read well and independently by the end of third grade. This guide details the knowledge and skills needed to support the America Reads Challenge or to implement a literacy development program for children from preschool through grade 3. The guide was designed for community partners in teaching children to read, including tutors, trainers, program developers, and administrators. Chapter 1, "How to Use This Guide," highlights the need for tutoring and relates relevant sections of the guide for completing various tasks. Chapter 2, "How Most Children Learn to Read," describes early child development, the effects of brain development on literacy development, and how children become readers and writers. Chapter 3, "How Tutors Can Support Young Readers," describes appropriate tutoring strategies for children of various ages, learning conditions that support literacy, scaffolding techniques, and motivating children to read. Chapter 4, "Involving Families in Tutoring Programs," discusses how to include family involvement in the tutoring program, form family literacy programs, and reach families through reading-related events. Chapter 5, "Building Community Partnerships," describes the America Reads Challenge, discusses collaborating with work-study programs, and provides contact information for programs supporting children's literacy development. Chapter 6, "Developing a Tutoring Program," describes the characteristics of effective tutoring programs and discusses eight steps to developing a tutoring program: (1) assess need; (2) define mission; (3) set goals and objectives; (4) create tutoring program partnerships; (5) design program design; (6) select/adapt curriculum; (7) support tutors; and (8) implement the plan.
