Cognitive Strategies for Integrating ESL and Content Area Instruction.
Numrich, Carol
Five classroom strategies for improving the comprehension of the content areas by students of English as a Second Language (ESL) are described. The strategies encourage students' processing skills of comprehension rather than emphasizing the products of comprehension. The strategies can help students learn English and also prepare them for higher-level thinking skills in the subject areas. The five strategies focus on (1) the skills of predicting based on prior knowledge, (2) anticipating what will be read next, (3) using statements to check their comprehension of a text during reading, (4) analyzing text organization by looking for specific patterns, and (5) classifying to facilitate comprehension of similarities and differences.
