Educators across content areas have turned to Classroom Strategies for Interactive Learning
for almost two decades. This fully updated fourth edition delivers rich, practical, research-based strategies that readers have found invaluable in the context of today's classrooms.
Doug has written all-new chapters that focus on the instructional shifts taking place as the Common Core State Standards are implemented across the United States. These introductory chapters will help you do the following:
- Understand the research base for comprehension strategies in content classrooms
- Learn how to tap into students' background knowledge to enhance comprehension of complex texts and build new knowledge
- Show learners how to question a text
- Teach reading and thinking through a disciplinary lens
At the heart of this edition are more than forty classroom strategies, with variations and strategy indexes that identify the instructional focus of each strategy, pinpoint the text frames in play as students read and learn, and correlate students' comprehension processes across the phases of strategy implementation. In addition, each strategy is cross-referenced with the Common Core's reading, writing, speaking/listening, and language standards.
