Every Teacher is a Reading Teacher!

"Words are small shapes in the gorgeous chaos of the world.
But they are shapes.
They bring the world into focus.
They corral ideas.
They hone thoughts.
They paint watercolors of perception."

                 Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses

The real value of reading lies in its use. In Content Area classrooms, a potentially powerful use of reading is to pursue and acquire understanding about the world through the study of texts. Reading to learn is what Content Area Reading is all about. The written word can bring the world into focus for students!

In order for students to truly gain understanding while reading, they must strategically interact with the text. Strategic readers think about text, think with text, and think through text. Reading Educator contains effective strategies that will engage students and encourage them to become active participants in the reading process.
