Adolescent Literacy in the Academic Disciplines: General Principles and Practical Strategies
Tamara L. Jetton, Cynthia Shanahan
Guilford Press, Jan 1, 2012 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 274 pages
"From leading authorities in both adolescent literacy and content-area teaching, this book addresses the particular challenges of literacy learning in each of the major academic disciplines. Chapters focus on how to help students successfully engage withtexts and ideas in English/literature, science, math, history, and arts classrooms. The book shows that while general strategies for reading informational texts are essential, they are not enough--students also need to learn processing strategies that are quite specific to each subject and its typical tasks or problems. Vignettes from exemplary classrooms illustrate research-based ways to build content-area knowledge while targeting essential reading and writing skills"-- Provided by publisher.
