Reading Like a Historian: Teaching Literacy in Middle and High School History Classrooms
Wineburg, Sam; Martin, Daisy; Monte-Sano, Chauncey
Teachers College Press
Reaching beyond textbooks, this is a guide to teaching "historical reading" with middle and high school students. This practical resource shows you how to apply Sam Wineburg's highly acclaimed approach to teaching, "Reading Like a Historian", in your classroom to increase academic literacy and spark students' curiosity. Each chapter begins with an introductory essay that sets the stage of a key moment in American history--beginning with exploration and colonization and the events at Jamestown and ending with the Cuban Missile Crisis. Following each essay are all the materials you'll need to teach this topic--primary documents, charts, graphic organizers, visual images, and political cartoons--as well as suggestions for where to find additional resources on the Internet and guidance for assessing students' understanding of core historical ideas. "Reading Like a Historian" will help you use your textbook creatively and give you ideas for how historical instruction can enhance students' skills in reading comprehension.
