SMART! A Reading Tutor’s Guide
Helping Teens Read, Think and Act Smarter
by Sylvia Keepers
SMART! A Reading Tutor’s Guide by Sylvia Keepers is a complete handbook for adults who want to help teens excel at reading and learning. SMART! is also an indispensable aid in setting up a tutoring practice. It covers all aspects of one-to-one reading instruction from word recognition through in-depth understanding at the advanced high school level. With this guide, any educated person, even one who has never taught before, can help teens read well, love reading and become motivated, independent learners.
While this book focuses on teaching teens, its use isn’t confined to one age group. Teachers who work with younger children are using the ideas in SMART! to help their students become more confident, enthusiastic readers. At the same time, instructors of college students and adults are finding practices here to help their students master the demands of higher level academic reading.
