With 30 Strategies to Build Literacy Skills: Engagement at Every Level of Thinking!, teachers will help students work smarter, not harder, to become actively engaged in their own learning. The thirty research-based, easy-to-use strategies—applicable to any content area—encourage student mastery of the curriculum standards for English. Authors Eric Jensen and LeAnn Nickelsen provide powerful tips for structuring teaching and address common fears and challenges that such a shift evokes.

Using this practical resource, teachers and administrators will

  • understand the components of engaged classrooms and create an environment where students are active participants in their learning
  • teach students to engage emotionally with text and retain and explain what they’ve read
  • distinguish between top-down, passive classrooms and two-way, engaged-for-success classrooms that promote higher-level thinking and learning
  • support lesson plans with activities, lists, and other reproducibles 

Although this book has been based on the Common Core State Standards, educators will find a wealth of useful information about building literacy skills in an Australian context. This book targets teachers of grades K–8, which is the equivalent of Years F–8 in Australia.
