Teaching Reading and Study Strategies: The Content Areas.
Robinson, H. Alan
This guide to teaching reading in the content areas is designed for both experienced and inexperienced teachers and emphasizes the specific teaching and learning of significant reading strategies which a student should apply to the patterns of writing used in various content areas. The book is divided into three parts, all dealing with reading as a process for learning in a given subject area. "Strategies for All Subjects" discusses evaluation procedures; readiness techniques; vocabulary strategies such as wide reading, dictionaries, and context clues; and such paragraph functions as explanation, definition, introduction, summary and conclusion, transition, narration, and description. "Specific Writing Patterns and Strategies" discusses in detail specific study skills to use with the subjects of science, social studies, mathematics, and English, and briefly covers other subjects such as business and home economics. "Parts of the Total Reading Program" discusses the utilization tasks of reaction, critical evaluation, and creative thinking, and notes special reading services available to content reading teachers.
