Literacy Strategies For Grades 4-12: Reinforcing The Threads Of Reading by reading specialist Karen Tankersley provides the classroom instructor with an extended variety of practical, "hands-on" strategies for inculcating and reinforcing reading skills with older students--especially those students who no longer have a formal reading class as part of the curriculum for their ordinary school day. Literacy Strategies For Grads 4-12 shows just how teachers (and home-schooling parents) can develop and expand on content-specific vocabulary; read text accurately, smoothly, and with proper phrasing; extract and construct meaning through reading; and how to critically evaluate, synthesize, analyze, and interpret text. Enhanced with a profusion of exercises ranging from 15-minute projects to semester-long whole-class assignments, Literacy strategies For Grades 4-12 will also prove invaluable for those working with teaching English-language learners the rudiments of reading in English.
