Swanson, Elizabeth; Reed, Deborah; Vaughn, Sharon
Preventing School Failure, v60 n4 p337-344 2016
High school social studies teachers face unique challenges in helping their students learn independently from text in their discipline. In this article, a set of research-based practices that couple independent student reading with high-quality instruction proven to improve content learning for high school nonnative English speakers is provided. Specific examples of each practice within a social studies unit are used to illustrate how to promote independent student reading and understanding that is integrated with the content.
