Earthquake! An Example of How to Develop Reading Skills Using a Topic of Current Interest.
Montori, Laura; Lally, Julia
A topic of student interest, earthquakes, is used as a vehicle for teaching reading and research skills in a California junior high school. Students develop geography skills by labeling fault lines on maps of the Pacific Basin, California, and San Francisco; develop their vocabulary by preparing a list of words about earthquakes; and practice word analysis skills through a variety of exercises. Students also take field trips and work independently on a research project about earthquakes. Upon completion of the unit, students take evaluation and vocabulary tests. Copies of all activities are included in this unit. A bibliography is provided. (LP)
