Over 40 instructional strategies and a clear-cut process for choosing which ones to use with adolescent learners to achieve success in reading content area text.

This insightful new text answers the question, “How do teachers choose which of the many effective strategies to use to support reading in the content areas–and how do they use those strategies?” Here, middle and high school teachers get an instructional model to embed literacy instruction into content area teaching. The book details over 40 sound literacy strategies that can be used with content area instruction to promote the development of vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and motivation.

The book’s unique focus is on process by providing guidance on how to choose the most effective literacy instructional strategies for different contexts and classes of students. It models clearly how teachers use the Literacy in Context Cycle (LinC: assess, reflect, plan, and teach/re-teach) to make decisions about which instructional assessments and strategies to choose for their adolescent students. Included are a Learning Log Appendix, a Teacher Tools Appendix, Pause and Reflect boxes, Resource icons, and more.
