Teaching Reading in the Content Areas: Developing Content Literacy for All Students.
Cooter, Robert B., Jr.; Flynt, E. Sutton
Organized around the content literacy model, this book provides scholarly and pragmatic information about teaching in the content areas and suggests a variety of successful strategies for incorporating reading, writing, listening, and speaking that can become part of a teacher's repertoire. The content literacy model used in the book arises from the belief that masterful teaching is based on the practices of reflection and assimilation. The book incorporates innovative teaching methods with traditional ideas. Chapters in the book are (1) Content Area Reading: Developing Literacy in Subject Matter Classrooms; (2) Students in the Content Classroom; (3) Assessing Content Literacy; (4) The Learning Environment; (5) Comprehending Text; (6) Vocabulary Development and the Content Area Classroom; (7) Learning from Expository Text; (8) Writing in the Content Area Classroom; (9) Extending Learning through Literature; and (10) Toward Independent Learning. Contains approximately 375 references. An appendix describes a guided action research plan. (RS)
