"In a cookbook," says Nancy, "you can open up any chapter and say, 'I'm going to make a dessert, what looks good?'" As it relates to teachers, seeing Texts and Lessons as a cookbook helps how you might focus on reading skills or writing skills. In this video, Nancy and Smokey walk you through the new book.
Content-area teachers, rejoice once again: Harvey “Smokey” Daniels and Nancy Steineke bring you the companion volume to their ever popular Texts & Lessons for Content-Area Reading—this time helping students “write to learn,” using powerful writing and thinking strategies that get students engaged in your content and prepare them for academic writing, but don’t increase your workload.
In this first video previewing the authors' work, Smokey and Nancy talk about the uses of writing and how it's a great way to help students remember new knowledge.
