Back to Literacy Strategies for Grades 4-12: Reinforcing the Threads of Reading (EBOOK)
It's tough to teach students science, math, or social studies when they have a hard time reading the textbook. But now, every teacher in grades 4-12 can use the ideas and classroom exercises from this practical guide to help students read for accuracy, extract meaning from text, and interpret their subject-area readings.
An experienced teacher and author describes everyday classroom practices—from 15-minute projects to semester-long whole-grade assignments—that motivate struggling students, rescue poor readers, and teach reading skills to English language learners. Get lots of easy-to-use teaching strategies while you explore the basics about reading that every teacher needs to know:
- Why adding a before-, during-, and after-reading strategy to assignments builds your students' comprehension and understanding of texts.
- How to expand your students' content-specific word knowledge with vocabulary webs and games, word walls, and word learning strategies.
- Why reading aloud to your students improves their reading fluency.
- How to ensure students get more out of texts by using creative writing assignments, discussions, and other strategies for extending their thinking.
