HS Reading in the Content

Posted By: Tonda Dunbar on May 15, 2003
 
I have worked with highschool teachers, presenting reading strategies for the content areas from Rachel Billmeyer's book, Teaching Reading in the Content Areas, If Not Me, Then Who? The teachers learned a couple of strategies each week and then tried them in their classrooms to provide feedback the following week. They were very impressed with how the strategies did help to increase understanding and performance on unit tests...they especially liked the vocabulary activities which goes beyond just memorizing vocabulary words to making connections and building conceptual understanding. Hope this information helps!
