Cognitive Strategy Instruction that Really Improves Children's Academic Performance
This completely rewritten and updated second edition presents the cognitive strategies empirically shown to improve competence in the elementary and middle school skills and content areas - decoding, reading comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, writing, science and mathematics. The expanded coverage includes a new chapter on strategies related to teaching science, and strategies to learn specific, often unconnected facts. Each chapter succinctly describes current validated teaching and learning strategies in that particular skill or content area, and the logic behind these strategies. References are provided in each chapter for the teacher who wants more information. A final chapter, "Getting Started Teaching Strategies", offers specific suggestions for teachers to follow in teaching and supporting strategies among their students.
