Practical, straightforward, and affordable, this guide gives middle and secondary school teachers the tools they need to support their studentsa?? comprehension and success in literacy and in content area learning. The classroom-proven strategies and procedures included are taken from the authorsa?? and their colleaguesa?? experience in middle and secondary classrooms. Each chapter opens with a vignette from an actual classroom to show readers effective teaching in action and to give them a look at how the chaptera??s instructional approach works within content area teaching. Research-based rationales for each strategy follow the vignettes and provide an in-depth look at how to implement the strategy, along with examples of each strategy across the curriculum.??The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video and assessments.??
