But I'm Not a Reading Teacher: Strategies for Literacy Instruction in the Content Areas
Benjamin, Amy
Eye on Education
This book shows content area teachers in middle and high schools how to boost student achievement by including lessons and strategies which focus on students' reading comprehension without detracting from content area focus. These mini-lessons and strategies are research-based and address the specific literacy challenges of each particular subject area (social studies, mathematics, science, etc.). The author has provided a large number of reading examples from texts, sample tests and assessments, and actual mini-lessons, their content areas identified by marginal tabs. Four parts and eight chapters comprise this book. Part I, About Academic Reading, contains: (1) Learning and Reading; (2) Scaffolding Vocabulary Instruction; and (3) Standardized Tests and Reading Comprehension. Part II, Academic Genres, contains: (4) Academic Genres: Subject Area Reading. Part III, The Strategies, contains: (5) The Before-Reading Strategies; (6) The During Strategies; and (7) After-Reading Strategies. Part IV, Schoolwide Programs, contains: (8) What Works? What Doesn't?
