Every teacher who asks students to read something in order to support their learning is a teacher of reading (or literacy, more broadly). It is in our best interests, as teachers, to have a solid understanding of how reading develops in order to help all our students achieve to the best of their abilities. This book presents creative classroom-tested lessons that will help you help teach your students reading strategies they can use to support how they interact with texts in all subject areas.
Just as rigor does not reside in the barbell but in the act of lifting it, rigor in reading is not an attribute of a text but rather of a reader's behavior-engaged, observant, responsive, questioning, analytical. The close reading strategies in Notice and Notewill help you cultivate those critical reading habits that will make your students more attentive, thoughtful, independent readers." -Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst
A collection of games and music to aid the drama teacher and give ideas for varied classes.
