High/Low Handbook helps you understand--and satisfy--the needs of disabled (below fourth-grade reading level) or reluctant (lacking in motivation) junior high and senior high readers. This practical resource guides you to a core collection of over 400 recommended books, magazines, software, and other nonprint materials. Incisive essays by practitioners and specialists in the field discuss such literacy efforts as reading with closed-captioned TV, using computers to capture reading attention, and the California Reading Initiative.
