Strategic Teaching and Learning: Standards-Based Instruction To Promote Content Literacy in Grades Four through Twelve.
Pritchard, Robert; Breneman, Beth
Noting that the quality of literacy instruction in the upper grades is equally essential as literacy in the primary grades, this book focuses on helping students' needs in the upper grades and the needs of all teachers in grades four through twelve who endeavor to help students read to learn across the curriculum and comprehend at grade level, and accelerate the development of beginning and struggling readers. The book is divided into two sections: a theoretical background (Understanding the Reading Process; Developing Strategic Readers; and Delivering Strategic Instruction) and instructional strategies (Reading Comprehension; Vocabulary Development; Phonological and Print Skills). The theoretical background discusses understanding the reading process; developing strategic readers; and delivering strategic instruction. The instructional strategies discuss reading comprehension; vocabulary development; and phonological and print skills. (Contains 3 figures and 66 references.) (PM)
