Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With three full chapters on reading comprehension (reflecting the before, during, after reading approach) and a separate chapter that explores multiple literacies, Content Area Reading: Teaching and Learning in an Age of Multiple Literacies, has a wealth of practical strategies for teaching reading, writing and study skills in the content area classroom.

 

See what's inside:

  •  Teaching Ideas icons found throughout chapter margins highlight practical strategies to use across content areas. Teaching Ideas that are specific to fostering student comprehension feature 5 steps of explicit instruction: 1. explain, 2. demonstrate, 3. guide, 4. practice, 5. reflect. After students walk through the strategy, they are able to see applications of the strategy within content-specific classroom examples. Student artifacts, student dialogues, and student writing samples show the real-life application of each Teaching Idea.
  • Every chapter opens with a chapter outline highlighting the key questions addressed within each chapter. Chapter outlines also have a complete list of the Teaching Ideas offered in the chapter.
  • Chapters are supported by feature streams that enhance comprehension by "making connections:"
    • Making Connections to Multiple Literacies notes found in all chapters connect chapter topics to different aspects of multiple literacy (ex. media literacy, critical literacy, mathematics literacy, visual literacy, etc.)
    • M aking Connections to Struggling Readers apply chapter topics to issues surrounding struggling readers
    • Making Connections to English Learners are notes that explore issues related to teaching English language learners
    • Making Connections to Writing features link chapter coverage to writing opportunities and give examples of ideas for writing assignments
    • Making Connections to Study Skills are notes that connect chapter topics to teaching different aspects of study skills and strategies
    • Making Connections boxes encourage students to actively engage with the chapter content by posing a question and then asking students to share their responses with a small group
  • Final Thoughts at the end of each chapter provide a chapter summary
  • E-Links annotated weblinks at the end of every chapter give students an opportunity to explore chapter topics in greater depth
  • Accountable Talk provides students with ideas for small group discussions
  • Portfolio/Performance Opportunity at the end of each chapter are ideas for expanding students' professional teaching portfolios
  • The Appendixes are practical, reproducible, idea-filled teaching resources that support a variety of topics addressed throughout the book. Examples featured include blackline masters, Discussion Circle Bookmarks, Double Entry Journal formats, Press Conference Checklist, First-Person Experience Rubric, form poems, and examples from projects such as the Content Area Resource Anthology, Student-Authored Electronic Books, and Transmediations.

  • MyEducationLab icons throughout connect chapter content to video, student artifacts, and lesson planning resources. To get access to MyEducationLab with the book, use the
