Teaching Through Text: Reading and Writing in the Content Areas
Teaching Through Text provides a broad range of techniques to enhance readers' literacy development and learning across the curriculum. McKenna and Robinson focus on describing, illustrating, and applying both teacher-directed and student-centered strategies. Student-centered strategies are illustrated through graphic organizers, concept bridges, and applicable exercises. These provide strategies that are clear to learners with different styles. This book also addresses students with special needs to help readers understand how to include students with such needs in the regular classroom.
