Overview

Utilizing a balanced approach to holistic learning and strategic learning, this innovative book includes case studies from all content areas to paint an exciting picture of the power of language-based teaching to enhance learners' motivation. A significant strength of this book is the way the authors use actual teachers (real teaching scenarios appear on nearly every page) to demonstrate how effective literacy and learning strategies have been implemented in junior and senior high school classrooms. With more emphasis on technology, updated research on students with special needs, and expanded coverage on content area literacy, this refreshing book shows future teachers how to transform uninspired students into active learners. Devotes a new chapter to computer technology and content area learning which provides practical, realistic ideas and strategies for teachers. Increases coverage of student motivation through new sections on self-efficacy and epistemologies related to motivating students to use strategies. Lists current young adult books that can be realistically and easily obtained.
