Description

Teaching students how to read strategically in every subject and year level helps them know how to think in order to successfully master the content. This practical guide for teachers of years P-12 examines current information about the role of metacognition (thinking about thinking); the interactive reading ingredients (context, reader, text features); and current research on vocabulary and concept development. Develop an increased knowledge base about reading instruction in all content areas by examining the three interactive reading ingredients and the four traits of a strategic reader. Improve instruction in your subject today, not just in the English classroom.
