Reading and Representing Across the Content Areas A Classroom Guide Synopsis

This groundbreaking work redefines traditional ideas of what a text should be, incorporating new kinds of multimodal texts to revitalize instruction within and across disciplines. The authors provide examples of innovative representations to aid learning in earth science, language arts, mathematics, and social studies classrooms. Each chapter focuses on a specific content area, outlining learning goals, relevant national standards, types of representation that enrich learning, and teaching strategies for developing critical literacy specific to that discipline. Reading and Representing Across the Content Areas is a powerful application of creative, multimodal teaching principles for meeting challenging standards.
