This supplement also includes suggestions on how to implement appropriate science readings into instruction and help students learn how to construct meaning from science textbooks. Contents include: (1) "Three Interactive Elements of Reading"; (2) "Strategic Processing"; (3) "Strategic Teaching"; (4) "Six Assumptions about Learning"; and (5) "Reading Strategies."
