ing. When teachers learn literacy strategies, implement the newly learned strategies in the classroom, show students how to use the strategies, and see student learning increase, they realize that literacy strategies are really learning strategies. Examples from science, social studies, math, and English language arts teachers show how to integrate reading, writing, and critical thinking across the curriculum. The authors draw on their extensive experience working with teachers and schools to define the best practices that have been proven to work in real schools. Each chapter explores the research foundation for a particular aspect of literacy, suggests key resources, defines critical issues, and then provides concrete strategies for actively engaging students in reading, writing, talking, and listening. Understand what the strategy is, why teachers should use it, and how to use it in clear step-by-step instructions complete with examples and templates.
