Teaching Content Through Reading. A Human Experience.
Frederick, E. Coston
This textbook is not about reading; rather, it is a book about how to teach content by employing reading techniques. It has been designed for preservice and inservice teachers to enhance their ability to teach subject matter. Heavy emphasis is placed on vocabulary development in content areas. Five chapters are devoted to individual directed reading activities on: (1) teaching concept comprehension; (2) vocabulary teaching techniques; (3) determining student readiness to understand content; (4) guiding silent reading, oral reading, and discussion; and (5) homework assignments and testing. Other topics covered include expressive application activities which involve speaking and writing or other forms of demonstration that concepts have been learned, and the use of the cloze technique.
