Description

Teachers and teacher candidates alike will find this practical, highly useable book–packed with real classroom examples of the strategies in action–a valuable resource for helping all students in their charge work toward mastery of literacy and comprehension of content area texts.

Practical, straightforward, and affordable, this guide gives middle and secondary school teachers the tools they need to support their students’ comprehension and success in literacy and in the content areas. The classroom-proven strategies and procedures that are included come from the authors’ and their colleagues’ experience in middle and secondary classrooms. Each chapter opens with a vignette from an actual classroom so readers get to see effective teaching in action and how the chapter’s instructional approach works within content area teaching. Research-based rationales for each strategy follow the vignettes and provide an in-depth look at implementing the strategy, along with examples of each strategy across the curriculum. Featured is coverage of ideas for working with English language learners and struggling readers.
