Stuck in the Middle

Helping Adolescents Read and Write in the Content Areas

by Roberta Ann McManus, Donna Hooker Topping

Donna Hooker Topping and Roberta McManus help you support struggling middle school students with page after page of immediately useful, ready-for-differentiation teaching. These strategies work by making the process of content-area literacy transparent and repeatable. Without interrupting the flow of instruction, the strategies in Stuck in the Middle help adolescents not only read texts but understand them too, make crucial subject-area vocabulary stick, grapple with themes, ideas, and content through writing, and find ways into content that fit individual learning styles.
