Helping Struggling Readers

My students are experiencing a great deal of success using a variety of reading strategies and ideas from Power Tools. Although this in not new for my students, it is for some of their other classes. I notice teachers in my building adopting some of the ideas from Power Tools into their own classrooms. I had to laugh when one of my students said he told his science teachers that she needed to "borrow some ideas from my reading class to help us understand this science stuff." "I get it in here, but it is harder in my other classes. " He said his teachers needed to give "us a purpsoe in reading like you do." :)
