A more fundamental shift in the way we teach history needs to occur for our students to be truly engaged and see how U.S. history is relevant to their own lives. When students engage and see the relevance of events in the past, they think critically and learn to make meaningful connections, and create a more inclusive classroom. NewChina Harvey_Lisa Herzig Heinemann authors China Harvey and Lisa Herzig provide the theoretical framework, fundamentals of the approach, and an explicit curriculum development structure for designing and teaching history thematically in middle and high school. There are practical tools to guide teachers to design a thematic history course for their students that addresses student interests, teaches essential history content, and meets state standards.

It offers useful tools, examples, and stories for teachers and instructors to translate into their own communities.

Owning Knowledge: Why Students Can't Read Deeply and What You Can Do About It, by Kelly Gallagher

Cover Coming soon! (4)Reading is not an all-purpose muscle for any task—we do better when we have "prior knowledge" concerning what we are reading. Even "good" readers falter if they know little in advance about what they are reading. Even comprehension strategies—like making inference—work better if the reader knows something about the topic. In this book, Kelly Gallagher takes on the challenge of describing how ELA teachers can help students build this prior knowledge. Gallagher is already well-known for his "article of the week" strategy that has been used widely across the country. In this book he will describe various types of prior knowledge, how they can be enhanced, and how students can become more aware of how prior knowledge works in their reading processes. In short—"To Read Stuff, You Have to Know Stuff."

Critical Reading in the Age of Disinformation: 5 Questions for Any Text, by Marilyn Pryle

Cover Coming soon! (6)This book lays out a flexible, student-centered method for building students’ critical reading skills in grades 6-12. Marilyn Pryle gives teachers a daily routine to guide students to critically navigate the texts they encounter in class and beyond. Using five specific, transferrable questions, students learn to look beyond a text itself to see the influences around it—the voices and sponsors, the craft and rhetoric, the intent and message—and the text’s effect on them. With constant, low-stakes practice, and with space to take risks, students develop the habits of critical questioning, of weighing other perspectives, and of building their own informed opinions.
