Overview

This book shows content area teachers in middle and high schools how to boost student achievement by including lessons and strategies which focus on students' reading comprehension without detracting from content area focus. These mini-lessons and strategies are research-based and address the specific literacy challenges of each particular subject area (social studies, mathematics, science, etc.). The author has provided a large number of reading examples from texts, sample tests and assessments, and actual mini-lessons, their content areas identified by marginal tabs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you are a content area teacher who has been known to think – or even say out loud – “I’m a _____ teacher, not a reading teacher,” then Amy Benjamin’s But I’m Not a Reading Teacher: Strategies for Literacy Instruction in the Content Areas is a must read. The book’s four parts provide examples, strategies, and practical applications for all teachers. Additionally, at www.amybenjamin.com, teachers will find more activities and classroom ready ideas for literacy instruction. Dr. Benjamin’s suggested strategies are sensible and easy for a busy teacher to implement."
—Anne Anderson for MiddleWeb
