Overview

Fisher and Frey present a model for teaching middle and high school students some of the most crucial skills, often neglected, in today�s schools: reading texts closely, taking good notes, analyzing and synthesizing information from multiple sources, then writing clearly and effectively.
Fisher and Frey have developed, implemented, and refined a process for teachers and students that results in evidence becoming a signature part of student work. When you use this process in your classroom, students will learn how to read closely to find out what a complex text says and means. They�ll understand the purpose and use of evidence. They will hone their annotation and sourcing skills. And they�ll learn how to communicate and focus their ideas through meaningful discussion before writing.
Chapters in this book focus on
� The Role of Evidence in Reading, Writing, and Discussion
� Close Reading of Complex Texts
� Preparing for Discussion and Writing: Annotation, Sourcing, and Avoiding Plagiarism
� Using Evidence in Discussion
� Writing From Sources
Videos linked throughout the text give you an opportunity to hear from teachers and students who have successfully implemented Fisher and Frey�s ideas. And you can access additional instructional videos on the authors� YouTube page. You�ll see how scaffolding these skills, which often are not learned until college or the workplace, can improve your students� reading and writing, both in terms of the habits they develop and in the writing they produce.
