Teaching Communication and Reading Skills in the Content Areas.
Hennings, Dorothy Grant
Intended for elementary school teachers who want to incorporate language skill-building activities into their subject area instruction, this booklet provides practical teaching strategies based on research about how children learn to read and communicate. The three major sections of the booklet deal with (1) teaching comprehension and study skills across the curriculum, (2) vocabulary development in the content areas, and (3) writing instruction across the curriculum, specifically in science and social studies. Each section offers instructional models synthesized from research and a number of specific instructional strategies. (FL)
