Help! My Students Can't Read Their Textbooks: Teaching Reading in the Middle Grades

"This six-part series is designed for middle level teachers looking for strategies that will increase their students’ comprehension of informational texts. Program 1 outlines many of the challenges confronting teachers with struggling readers. Programs 2-6 provide in-depth classroom examples of a variety of instructional strategies in each of the four core academic areas—mathematics, social studies, language arts, and science.
The series is rich in classroom videotape examples and provides participants with many opportunities to apply their new knowledge to the texts they teach and to plan instruction for their students. Through questions that focus their viewing of Programs 2-6, participating teachers are asked to consider the strengths of each of the lessons presented and how the strategies could be adapted for their own classrooms."
