Every day secondary English/Language Arts teachers face students with different independent and instructional reading levels within the same classroom. In today’s climate of high-stakes testing, they consequently confront a seemingly impossible task: facilitating student mastery of the TEKS SEs when many students read below grade level and need differentiated instruction in order to develop the metacognitive skills necessary for “reading to learn.” The first step in addressing this challenge is providing middle and high school teachers with the tools they need to integrate direct instruction in reading into their lessons. This session addresses ways to do this without sacrificing the teaching of rigorous content and the attainment of high standards by all students.
