Description

Some of the best-known authors in the field come together to provide teachers with fifty step-by-step procedures for implementing content area instructional routines to improve students’ literacy skills. 50 Instructional Routines to Develop Content Literacy, 3/e helps adolescents to become more successful readers. Middle and high school teachers can immediately put to use its practical information and classroom examples from science, social studies, English, math, the visual and performing arts, and core electives to improve students’ reading, writing, and oral language development. Going above and beyond basic classroom strategies, the instructional routines recommend simple changes to teachers’ everyday instruction that foster student comprehension, such as thinking aloud, using question-answer relationships, and teaching with word walls.

 

The routines are:

  • Selected to ensure that all students engage in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing as part of the literacy process.
  • Taken from real classrooms, real students, and real results.
  • Organized for easy and quick referencing.
  • Applicable to English learners and struggling readers.

Features

  • Selected to ensure that all students engage in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing as part of the literacy process. All routines are:
    • Evidence-based: A clear research base is presented with every instructional routine–readers learn when and why to use a particular approach.
    • Useful: Only those routines that have been used successfully by the authors or their colleagues are included, avoiding others that are too complex, require too much time, or cannot be implemented with groups of students.
  • Content area appropriate: The routines can be used in every middle and high school content area or class.
  • Taken from real classrooms, real students, and real results.
    • Practical examples are presented for each routine, illustrating the ways it has been used in actual classrooms.
    • NEW! Detailed classroom scenarios that are stronger and easier to implement. Many of the student work samples are from the authors’ own classrooms, and give readers reliable examples of actual outcomes.
  • Organized for easy and quick referencing.
    • The alphabetical arrangement makes it easy to find a specific routine.
    • An index on the inside front cover specifies each strategy’s literacy focus and whether it is meant to be used before, during, or after reading.
    • Introductions for each routine include brief reviews of the research.
    • Step-by-step guidelines for implementing the routines follow the introduction.
    • Classroom examples further illustrate the successful implementation of each strategy.
  • Applicable to special groups, and focused on a variety of content areas:
    • Specific applications for English learners are highlighted where appropriate, with additional information on how best to adjust the routine to fit their unique needs.
    • Specific applications for struggling readers who need interventions to ensure that they read and write more and better every day, including read-alouds, shared reading, text structures, independent reading, and echo-reading tasks.
    • NEW! Focus on additional content areas: This edition expands content area examples beyond English, math, science, and social studies classes to include examples from PE, music, art, family and consumer sciences, and even more vocational and visual and performing arts classes.

New to this Edition

While continuing to feature the most successful instructional routines, this edition also includes these updates:

 

  • NEW! Detailed classroom scenarios that are easier to implement. Many of the student work samples are from the authors’ own classrooms, and give readers reliable examples of actual outcomes.
    • NEW! New routines that address the Common Core State Standards. Instructional routines specifically designed to fit the requirements of the current standards include close reading, annotation, text-dependent questions, and collaborative conversation.
  • The scenarios have been reviewed and revised to ensure consistency with the curriculum and instruction recommended by the Common Core State Standards, though these strong and effective instructional practices remain useful even in areas not implementing the CCSS.
  • NEW! Up-to-date research reviews and references. The newest edition features reviews of the current research, new studies published since the previous edition, and the assurance that each routine remains relevant and effective for content area reading.
  • NEW! A focus on additional content areas. This edition expands content area examples beyond English, math, science, and social studies classes to include examples from PE, music, art, family and consumer sciences, and even more vocational and visual and performing arts classes. In each case, a profiled teacher has used the instructional routine successfully with content regularly taught in a real classroom.

Reader Review(s)

"50 Instructional Routines to Develop Content Literacy is a valuable resource for teachers from all content areas to help students become better readers, writers, thinkers, collaborators, and communicators. The routines are grounded in sound research and pedagogy and the step-by-step directions and real-class/real-student examples and scenarios allow educators to move beyond theory to implementation. The short chapters allow for busy teachers to quickly sort through and select the best routines for any instructional purpose. The chapters also offer suggestions for differentiation, including for ELL students, so that the routines can be tailored to meet the needs of any group of students. This text is a toolbox that teachers from all content areas will find themselves referencing throughout the school year."

 

-- Lisa Lloyd, Hastings Middle School (Upper Arlington, Ohio)

 

"I found the material beneficial to me as a teacher and will definitely use some new techniques in with my students to improve literacy."

-- Danielle Morrison, Lincoln High School (Gahanna, Ohio)

 

"The organization of each routine is especially helpful: brief review of research, step-by-step guide, classroom examples, and relevant graphics, etc.  It is refreshing to see a text that is so useful."
