Words Their Way: Vocabulary for American History, The World Before 1600 to American Imperialism (1890-1920)
Words Their Way: Vocabulary Their Way with American History shows middle and secondary level American history teachers how to engage in history in order to ignite student debates over topics or issues; read, write and think like historians to help students organize the domain-specific vocabulary words into ways that make sense; use general academic vocabulary and language to help students explore and learn about the past; and tap into the powerful roots of English to become equipped with the tools to help students become independent word learners for the rest of their lives. After setting the stage for teaching vocabulary in history, 12 independent American history units cover the four stages in domain-specific vocabulary instruction and related core activities and strategies, including building background knowledge, thinking like a historian, connecting vocabulary in context, and assessing vocabulary knowledge. The units parallel eras in American history and the related chapters generally found in American history textbooks. They provide flexibility for use as the teacher sees fit, with an eye to students' needs and instructional objectives. Three helpful appendices include a look at the big picture graphic organizers customized for teach of the 12 units, three generative vocabulary assessments, and history teachers' favorite go-to generic graphic organizers and ready-to-use blank templates.

Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum: A Handbook of Instructional Strategies
This text uniquely offers preservice and inservice teachers templates for using quality children's literature to implement six themes across grades K-8. The themes are based on national curriculum standards and text sets are carefully selected to facilitate discussion, analysis, and problem solving across the grades. Using Children's Literature Across the Curriculum, 1/e provides teachers with a guide to using multilayered texts to facilitate students' attainment of critical literacy. It is designed to be a supplemental text to guide teachers in designing literacy instruction. The instructional sequence includes collaborative inquiry activities across the curriculum to extend each theme to math, science, technology and social studies. Teachers are shown how to incorporate family literacy with a component entitled 'Home School Connections' and to differentiate instruction for individual learners with a section entitled 'On Your Own Activities'. The theme concludes with a critical literacy activity that applies the content knowledge of the theme with collaborative inquiry. A unique feature of the handbook is the emphasis on performance based assessment with each instructional sequence containing two rubrics for the teacher to implement. The instructional sequences are meant as models for teachers to use in developing their own themes in order to facilitate critical literacy. These 'models' can be adjusted to fit the reading level of the students as teachers become more familiar with the text's structure and their students' needs.
