Integrating the Language Arts and Content Areas: Effective Research-Based Strategies.
Lapp, Diane; Fisher, Douglas; Flood, James
The California Reader, v32 n4 p35-38 Sum 1999
Teachers can confront issues of students' infrequent reading and infrequent choice of content area texts by using specific instructional strategies that are highly motivating. Five research-based language arts strategies that many teachers use to successfully teach content area information are: (1) previewing vocabulary and content; (2) developing questions as guides to comprehension; (3) using realia, concrete objects, and manipulatives; (4) retelling and summarizing; and (5) creating visual representations. Underlying all of these activities is the assumption that students have access to a lot of books and are provided time and encouragement to read. (Contains 20 references.) (RS)
