Book Overview

To help every kid fall in love with at least one field of knowledge, our students must encounter our fields' most galvanizing, tantalizing, and pivotal documents. This book is about making those encounters as compelling as we can make them.
-Harvey Smokey Daniels and Steven Zemelman

We are specialists to the bone-in science, math, social studies, art, music, business, and foreign language. But now, the Common Core and state standards require us to help our students better understand the distinctive texts in our subject areas. Nobody's making us into reading teachers, write Smokey Daniels and Steve Zemelman, but we must become teachers of disciplinary thinking through our students' reading.

If this shift sounds like a tough one, Subjects Matter, Second Edition is your solution. Smokey and Steve, two of America's most popular educators, share exactly what you need to help students read your nonfiction content closely and strategically:

  • 27 proven teaching strategies that help meet-and exceed-the standards
  • how-to suggestions for engaging kids with content through wide, real-world reading
  • a lively look at using boring textbooks
  • motivating instruction that's powered by student collaboration
  • specifics for helping struggling readers succeed.

   ... in high school- although it would serve as a good reminder to ela teachers as well
This book is an absolute must read for any non-English teacher in high school, although it would serve as a good reminder to ela teachers as well. I could see this book absolutely approached as a PLC book study for groups trying to close the achievement gap in secondary literacy, with so many explicit strategies that could help a school building or department gain traction on reaching their goals.

   Nice Little Toolbox for Secondary Educators
I have appreciated both the support and criticism given to various components of the Common Core. The authors seem to move about and through modern political fashion just fine, as they present concrete examples of the functional teaching of reading. The folksy style makes the book accessible and many see it as a strength. I prefer a bit more formality ''. Some of the research used to support the techniques refers to teacher blog posts, but much of it does seem to be authentic educational research of varying quality. The techniques have strong anecdotal support. In a sentence, the two authors appear to know their business and communicate it succinctly and accessibly.
