The Reading To Learn Project: Learning Strategies in the Content Areas (6th Grade and Beyond).
Dzama, Mary Ann
The Virginia Reading to Learn Project is a state-wide project designed to help content area teachers at the middle school and secondary school levels teach their students how to comprehend their content area textbooks. Teachers learn instructional strategies and techniques within the framework of the total reading process incorporating reading, writing, and oral communication skills. In turn, the teachers show their students how to apply these strategies and techniques in order to monitor their reading and learning. The project consists of three components: (1) a pre-institute session held one afternoon in May which focuses on course requirements and an overview of the structure of the summer institute; (2) an 8-day summer institute; and (3) a one-hour follow-up course in the fall. (Extensive appendixes--90% of the document--include the program for the summer institute, a collection of favorite lesson plans developed by the participants, and additional resources.) (RS)
