The key, of course, is practice—plus a little guidance from you. And you’ll be ready, no matter what subject you teach, because this essential reference is packed with relevant, contemporary teaching strategies that are easily customizable to work across content areas. Inside, you’ll find:

  • Engaging exercises based in the kinds of writing students already do
  • Versatile “parachute writings”—quick bursts of practice to drop into a day’s lesson
  • Strategies for introducing academic vocabulary and making it stick
  • Skill-boosting strategies for successful summarizing and using textual evidence
