Written for the busy practitioner by an experienced professional development consultant, writer, and speaker, Literacy for Real is a hands-on guide to meaningful reading across the content areas of math, science, and social studies in grades 6-12. It presents key information that addresses all types of 21st century literacy--visual, digital, and print--in an easy-to-use format. The book centers on classroom practices and strategies for helping students tackle the reading required for subject-area study. Chapters focus on engagement, vocabulary, comprehension, and critical reading, and each includes sample activities as well as a list of resources. Avoiding the one-size-fits-all model, this guide instead offers foundational practices based on what we know about learning
