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.)

    • 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
