Editorial Reviews

Review

"Teachers and students studying to be teachers want strategies that they can use in the classroom and this book definitely delivered...The reader is hooked from the first page."

~Amy MacKenzie, Manhattanville College, Purchase, NY

 

"These two authors clearly have a background in classroom teaching and are adept at writing for the busy, classroom teacher.  Their style of prose moves the reader through focusing vignettes and into the rigors of the chapters."

   ~Rosemary Fessinger, University of New Mexico

Literacy in Context (LinC): Choosing Instructional Strategies

to Teach Reading in the Content Areas for Students Grades 5-12

 

 

This insightful book has the answers that will help teachers choose which strategies to use to support reading in the content areas—and how to use them effectively.

 

There are many effective strategies that can be used to support literacy, but how do teachers choose and use them?Literacy in Context (LinC, pronounced “link”) provides middle and high school teachers with an instructional model to embed literacy instruction into content area teaching. This book details literacy strategies that can be used with content area instruction to promote the development of vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and motivation. Unique to this book is the focus on process--it provides guidance about how to choose the most effective literacy instructional strategies for different contexts and classes of students. The book models how teachers use the LinC Cycle(assess, reflect, plan, and teach/re-teach) to make decisions about which instructional assessments and strategies to choose for their adolescent students.
