This hands-on text includes a wealth of secondary reading strategies and lesson plans based on the Directed Reading framework developed by the authors. Just in time for the emphasis of using reading as a learning tool in the content areas, this highly practical book will revolutionalize the way your students develop lesson plans for their secondary students. The core of teachers' tasks is that of writing lessons, and this unparalled text provides the tools to do just that. Putting It All Together uses a unique model-analysis-application approach. It begins with course or workshop participants reading authentic lesson plans designed by real secondary teachers to teach content with supportive reading strategies. Through an inductive approach, participants read four sample lesson plansart, science, English and one in their content area (music, business education, social studies, special education, physical education, mathematics, foreign language, consumer/family science, health)in order to discern the parts of the Directed Reading Lesson. Once readers understand what the end productthe lesson plan formatlooks like, each step of the Directed Reading Lesson is explicated for the what, why, and how. After each step is explained, participants are guided through a series of questions to prepare the parts of a Directed Reading Lesson for their own students.
