SPOTLIGHTS

CCKM responded to a group of parents who needed a quick survey of evidence and advice for tutoring children in Grades 4 to 8 who struggle with reading.  Much of the research on literacy is focused on beginning readers and not on older children.  CCKM used its search strategy for the Volunteer Tutoring Review of Evidence to locate studies relevant to the grade levels, and to parents as tutors. The four best studies were SPOTLIGHTED. In collaboration, the Research Works! staff provided a summary of online resources.
