Why Reading Comprehension in the Content Areas is Important

Why Reading Comprehension in the Content Areas is Important | Science education | Scoop.it

Amanda Ronan writes: To prepare students for college and careers, reading comprehension needs to be a part of allsubject areas. Students cannot master complex scientific concepts, comprehend historical treaties, or follow complex logic problems without it. Content areas deal with complex texts that require analytical reading skills. Students in social studies, science, and math classes have to be able to compare and synthesize ideas, and use specific academic vocabulary."
