Review:

In the pages of this practical, straightforward, affordable guide, teachers and teacher candidates get the tools they need to support their middle and secondary school students’ comprehension and success in literacy and in the content areas. Packed with classroom-proven strategies and procedures from the authors’ and their colleagues’ own experiences, it includes vignettes from actual classrooms showing effective teaching in action and how the instructional strategy works within content area teaching. Also included are research-based rationales for each strategy, providing in-depth looks at how to implement each strategy, along with examples of each strategy across the curriculum. With its focus on providing the right help for English language learners and struggling readers, coupled with media notes that provide ways for teachers to use different technologies to enhance teaching, this guide provides the right combination of strategies, advice, and ideas for improving literacy in all middle and secondary classrooms.
