Improving Adolescent Literacy: Content Area Strategies at Work

by ,

Too many students in middle and secondary classrooms struggle to comprehend texts in their content area classes. This straight-forward, affordable text provides classroom-proven strategies to improve middle and secondary students' comprehension of content area texts. Each chapter opens with a vignette from actual classrooms, offering a glimpse into a middle or secondary classroom, and presenting the chapter's instructional strategy within content area teaching. These scenarios are followed by a research-based rationale for each strategy, an in-depth look at implementing the strategy, and examples of each strategy across the curriculum. A new focus in each chapter on English learners, and new features examining struggling readers, give you insight to support these learners. New Media Notes clarify opportunities to use different technologies to enhance teaching. Together these elements provide you with the tools to support your middle and secondary students' comprehension and success. Hide synopsis
