25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area | Common Core | Scoop.it

"Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another.

Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does.

Science content can often by full of jargon, research citations, and odd text features.

Social Studies content can be an interesting mix of itemized information, and traditional paragraphs/imagery..."

How often do you hear a student say "I don't know." Here are five alternative suggestions that you might offer up to your students. Why? If we want our students to become critical thinkers they need to be able to ask questions. Rather than accepting the answer "I don't know" have the student think a bit more and come up with a better question. Click through to the post to see three additional questions and share your own if you have other suggestions.

This blog  hits the nail on the head...reasearch papers must be inquiry based. In order to be college and career ready students must know how to  draw inferences and make conclusions using evidence to back up their argument. They must also know how to identify credible sources. Using this inquiry driven research approach teaches them "how to fish", which is a lifelong survival skill students will need To function in today's society.m

How do we get students to conduct inquiry-driven research where they cannot easily Google the answer? This post provides a look at how to teach teenagers by using questions that do not have an easy answer, specifically "Who is more popular, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, or Beyoncé?" It does not have a clear cut answer and requires that you look at trends. A description of what this question led to is provided and it shows that answering this question leads to a range of resources that students must also look at and evaluate.

But what about younger students? Two suggestions are made that will help you start thinking about how to do this and engage younger students in conducting inquiry-driven research. For more information on this click through to the post.
