... Principles for effectively supporting struggling readers and writers include: • directly targeting specific literacy difficulties while giving explicit instruction in reading and writing; • providing more intense instruction, more explicit instruction, and even more oppor tunities to practice than for other learners; • offering enhanced support to help learners generalize and transfer their new literacy skills; • addressing struggling learners' attributions, beliefs, and motivational profiles -- in other words, whether they explain their successes and failures to themselves in ways that foster motivation and continued engagement or decrease motivation and engagement; and • providing instruction that is individualized, with materials that are at the right level of challenge and with appropriate feedback provided while learning.
