Overview

To make content area learning more engaging and meaningful for all students Kathy and Bill present teachers with a basic framework for pairing literacy strategies with readily available classroom technology. Drawing on concepts of universal design, and flexible curriculum access, the authors explore legislation authorizing the use of technology for learners with diverse abilities and offer teachers tools to make technology work in their classroom. Their evidence-based procedures, explicit instruction strategies, and authentic activities guide teachers in integrating curriculum with English/language arts, social studies, science, and math to reduce the barriers to learning and improve student achievement. Kathy and Bill’s friendly advice and suggestions for technology adaptations for reading strategies are the just the support teachers need to turn their classroom into a powerful learning community that fosters reading comprehension and content learning for all students.
