...students of St. John Fisher College.
Best wishes as you journey into literacy in the content areas (and blogging). From my own bookshelf, I recommend Teaching Reading the Content Areas by Billmeyer and Barton (there are even special books for math, science, and social studies). Its sister book, Teaching Writing in the Content Areas, is also worth a look.
I absolutely love Reading Reminders by Jim Burke. If you can get only one book---make it that one. I have not looked through his Writing Reminders, but do plan to borrow it from a colleague one of these weekends. Burke also has a fabulous book of graphic organizers called Tools for Thought.
Speaking of graphic organizers, here are three kickin' websites with templates and samples to download: Notemaking, via Englishcompanion.com, Tools for Reading, Writing, and Thinking from Greece SD in NY, and Graphic Organizers on ed.com.
Lots of good stuff to share. I hope you'll let me know what you find out there that you like!
