The Middle School High Five: Strategies Can Triumph
by Amy Goodman
|Grades||5 – 8|
A literacy support teacher leads a district-wide initiative to organize content-area teachers in an effort to help their students become better readers by offering instruction and practice in five reading strategies across the curriculum. At the end of the 10-week program, teachers felt that students’ comprehension had improved, and many felt some of the credit for improved reading scores could be traced to the effort.
