Addressing the Literacy Crisis: Teaching Reading in the Content Areas.
Barton, Mary Lee
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n587 p22-30 Mar 1997
Middle-level and high school teachers must be skilled in content-area reading strategies and be able to teach their students strategic informational reading skills. Students who learn how to use background knowledge, text-feature knowledge (headings, graphics, and vocabulary), and metacognitive knowledge.skillfully will become strategic readers. Since students must learn to read in all content areas, every teacher must be a reading teacher. (MLH)
