Jones, Beau Fly; And Others
This book presents a framework for teaching skills that reflects new research on thinking, teaching for understanding, and instruction in the language arts and content areas at all levels. The book is organized into two parts. Part 1 presents the framework for teaching the language arts as thinking--topics covered are learning, organizational patterns, and instruction. In Part 2, five examples for teaching specific content and skills objectives are presented: the short story or novel; content area passages; poetry; finding the main idea; and argumentation. A glossary of terms related to current educational research is included. (MM)
