Some readers saw a conflict between these two perspectives. The authors of Reading Reconsidered have always thought that the answer was more complex: that technique was irreplaceable and helped teachers maximize the application of their subject knowledge but there was also no substitute for content knowledge. Moreover, they believed, there were in fact techniques specific to each of the content areas that drive results and could be delineated and learned like the general techniques in Teach Like a Champion. Reading Reconsidered is the authors first effort to take on the challenge of defining subject specific methods. It is an anxious time for many teachers but also a time of great opportunity. This book will provide a road map from confusion to success.CONTENTS.Chapter 1: Reading the DataChapter 2: Choosing What to ReadChapter 3: Close ReadingChapter 4: Making Non-Fiction StickChapter 5: The Epic Importance of Word Study and VocabularyChapter 6: Reading More- Reading BetterChapter 7: Interactive ReadingChapter 8: Writing for ReadingChapter 9: Intellectual Autonomy
