What does literacy mean in today′s society? Better yet, how do teachers help students become literate?
More Than 100 Tools for Literacy in Today′s Classroom provides a wide variety of activities to stimulate students to think about their own thinking. To be literate in today′s world, students must be able to think about and apply the information they acquire in the classroom to their lives outside of school.
Author Joan F. Groeber presents practical information on metacognative theory and reading and studying skills. These ready-to-use activities are arranged according to preparation time: Simple Things to Do, Things That Take Effort, and For the Committed. Not only do these activities inspire students to think about their own thinking, but they also help them become better readers and writers, enhance vocabulary acquisition and development and foster effective techniques for using resource materials.
Also included in this comprehensive resource are recommended assessment tools such as checklists, logs and journals, anecdotal records, and criteria-referenced tests. More Than 100 Tools for Literacy in Today′s Classroom is packed with a wide variety of strategies for improving comprehension of fictional and nonfictional texts and for transferring life skills to the real world.
