Classroom Strategies for Secondary Reading.
Harker, W. John, Ed.
This volume is intended for secondary content area classroom teachers. The booklet is made up of selected portions of articles from periodical literature dealing with secondary reading. These articles meet the practical requirements of content area teachers who want to teach reading but who are unsure of where to begin and what to do. The five sections within the book are organized to guide teachers through a sequence of steps that can result in the development of successful classroom reading programs. A wide variety of approaches and programs is described. Overall, the volume is intended to illustrate that successful reading programs can begin with the efforts of individual teachers who take steps in their own classrooms to teach students how to learn more effectively through reading.
