Implementing Reading Interventions

Dr. Linan-Thompson describes the components of effective interventions and how English learners can benefit from additional teaching. She describes reading interventions that are typically Tier 2 small group daily interventions that are provided in addition to classroom instruction. In addition to group size and amount of time, the recommended characteristics of interventions include scaffolding across reading components, well-paced instruction with adequate practice, and inclusion of oral language development during reading skills instruction.
