Stuck in the Middle: Helping Adolescents Read and Write in Content Areas

Posted by terryjamesresourcecentre on August 12, 2010

Donna Hooker Topping and Roberta McManus help you support struggling middle school students with page after page of immediately useful, ready-for-differentiation teaching. These strategies work by making the process of content-area literacy transparent and repeatable.

Without interrupting the flow of instruction, Donna and Roberta’s strategies help adolescents:

  • not only read texts but understand them too
  • make crucial subject-area vocabulary stick
  • grapple with themes, ideas, and content through writing
  • find ways into content that fit individual learning styles.

“Content-area teachers have a unique opportunity to help students not only learn the material but also improve their overall literacy,” write Donna Hooker Topping and Roberta McManus, “so we offer our best strategies to you.” If you want to know how to help struggling readers make sense of the textbook, if you need help differentiating, or if you are overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of learning styles in your classroom, trust Donna and Roberta’s decades of experience. 

The Terry James Resource Library also has many more books about teaching English Language for every grade.
