How Do I Write a Thesis Statement? What is an Antagonist?
The answers to those questions and many more are in 100-Plus Reading and Writing Strategies, a new collection of approaches and activities that the author, ELA teacher Kristina Janeway, has used to help students successfully bridge instructional and learning gaps in their education: word comprehension, interacting with various texts, questioning skills, testing strategies, sentence building, and basic writing skills.
100-Plus Reading and Writing Strategies is divided into six sections:
- Reading Strategies
- Spelling and Vocabulary Strategies
- Sentence-Building Strategies
- Writing Strategies
- Literary Glossary of Terms
- Glossary of Rhetorical Terms and Techniques
The Reading, Spelling and Vocabulary, Sentence-Building, and Writing sections are structured into a “For the Teacher” instructional page and a “For the Student” handout or organizer that corresponds to the activity. Handouts are reproducible.
Activities have step-by-step instructions for a suggested lesson as well as alternative implementations or extensions to enhance the activity and allow more use as a student gains academic strength in the area of concern.
