Résumé

Pre-service and in-service middle and secondary school teachers get a wide variety of instructional techniques they can use to foster comprehension of materials in their content areas.

 

The core set of instructional techniques included in this evidence-based, practical resource help middle and secondary teachers incorporate reading-related approaches into their classrooms. The authors show how to implement the approaches in an easy manner that avoids diverting time from content learning. Some of the approaches covered include vocabulary techniques (e.g., graphic organizers, feature analysis, list-group-label), comprehension techniques (e.g., reading guides, questioning strategies), and study techniques. The book also addresses issues of assessment, motivation, and cultural and linguistic diversity.
