Supporting Content Area Literacy with Technology

Drawing on concepts of universal design and flexible curriculum access, this vital new book demonstrates how you can employ up-to-the-minute technology to make content literacy strategies more engaging and responsive to the learning needs of all students. The evidence-based procedures, explicit instruction strategies, and authentic activities guide you in integrating curriculum with English/language arts, social studies, science, and math content literacy. The authors’ basic framework enables you to adapt the plan to your classroom resources and requirements, reducing the barriers to learning and opening the door to greater student achievement. With the support of these appropriate technology techniques you’ll be ready to turn your classroom into a powerful learning community!

“With many school districts looking for ways to differentiate instruction and use . . . technology, I can see this text becoming a serious reference tool on how to add technology to help content instruction for all learners.” –Patti Taillacq, instructional para-educator, Marlborough Intermediate Elementary, Massachusetts

“Even though I have been in education for 34 years, I found the content of this [book] to be ‘new’ information and I learned something different from each chapter. The authors have a very good grasp of what teachers need and want.” –Melodie Santana, assistant principal, Suva Intermediate School, California
