Teaching through Text: Reading and Writing in the Content Areas is evidence-based, designed to help middle and high school content teachers apply effective reading-related techniques for fostering comprehension of materials in their area. This book provides a core set of instructional techniques that are easy for teachers to implement and that do not encroach on the time spent learning content. In order to help teachers incorporate reading-related approaches into their classroom, Teaching through Text begins by explaining how these approaches are easy to implement and require no time diverted from content learning. Specific approaches are nested within "before-during-after" lesson formats, such as the DR-TA and Reciprocal Teaching. Unlike other texts on the market in this area, all the approaches provided in the book have a strong empirical base. Some approaches provided in the text include: vocabulary techniques (e.g., graphic organizers, feature analysis, list-group-label), comprehension techniques (e.g., reading guides, questioning strategies), and study techniques. The book also addresses issues of assessment, motivation, and cultural and linguistic diversity.
