    • C-3 Content Area Literacy Strategies for Middle School and High School Classrooms
      Katherine S. McKnight, Ph.D.
      Katie@KatherineMcKnight.com
    • Assumptions Underlying Content Literacy
      Subject Matter
      Role of the Textbook
      Active Readers
      Independent Readers
    • What is Content Literacy?
      Generally defined as “the ability to use reading and writing for the acquisition of new content in a given discipline” (McKenna & Robinson, 1990, p. 184)
    • The Impact of Schema on Content Literacy
      Source: Alvermann, D. and Phelps, S. (2002). Content Reading and Literacy: Succeeding in Today’s Diverse Classrooms. (5th Ed.).Boston, MA: Allyn and Bacon.
    • More on Schema
      The notes were sour because the seam split.
      Source: Alvermann, D. and Phelps, S. (2002). Content Reading and Literacy: Succeeding in Today’s Diverse Classrooms. (5th Ed.).Boston, MA: Allyn and Bacon.
    • More on Schema
      The batsmen were merciless against the bowlers. The bowlers placed their men in slips and covers. But to no avail. The batsmen hit one in four after another along with an occasional six. Not once did a ball look like it would hit their stumps or be caught.

    • Hints for Struggling Readers
      Provide readers who struggle to decode with opportunities to hear the text read aloud (tape assist)
      Give readers for whom word recognition is a problem supplemental materials that include visual clues to word meaning (or use manipulatives in math)
      Allot additional time for readers who struggle to complete assignments
      Encourage struggling readers to use the internet because often the symbols and icons that are quite bothersome to good readers provide a means for struggling readers to construct meaning
    • Schema and Comprehension
      Activating prior knowledge with prereading guides
      Anticipation guides
      Content Reading Activities like: KWL, SQ3R, and DRTA
      Story Impression
      Vocabulary Exercises
    • “THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO”Edgar Allan Poe----Sample Anticipation Guide
      DIRECTIONS: Put an “X” in the space to indicate whether or not you agree or disagree with the corresponding statement.
    • KWL
      K= What the reader already knows
      L= What the reader wants to learn or know.
      L= What I learned
    • SQ3R
    • DRTA
    • DRTA
    • Story Impression
      introduces vocabulary
      taps into students’ prior knowledge
      catapults the reader into active reading and comprehension
    • Six Ways to Use Textbooks More Effectively
      Empathy- Do you remember when you had difficulty in a subject and the text was difficult?
      Help the students to get started. We need to “front-load” our teaching.
      Don’t leave kids alone with their textbooks.
      Choose wisely. Be selective with assignments. Be strategic about what is most important.
      Supplement richly.
