40 Ways to Support Struggling Readers in Content Classrooms Grades 6-12 by Elaine K. McEwan-Adkins
Book DescriptionThe major challenge of teaching secondary content in the current era of accountability lies in helping all students read the massive textbooks, understand the complex concepts and ideas, and demonstrate proficiency on high-stakes tests. No Child Left Behind (2002) has created a growing sense of urgency on the part of every secondary educator to find ways to help struggling readers achieve. The idea is not that you are expected to teach struggling readers how to read. However, you are increasingly being expected to teach the knowledge and skills related to your discipline on which all students will be tested. To reach even a modest level of proficiency, struggling readers need support. 40 Ways to Support Struggling Readers in Content Classrooms Grades 6-12 contains forty research-based and classroom-tested methods that teachers can implement to help struggling readers be more successful.
