Unfortunately, my experience with the teaching credential program wasn't positive. Lots of busy work, lesson planning, and educational theories. I didn't learn much practical skills in teaching English. My MA in English Composition revolutionized how I approach teaching English and it's now very Common Core. I love it. But if you haven't taken any Composition classes but need more information on how to teach critical reading, read this book. I read through it and love it because of these reasons:
(1) Readability. The language is easier for high schoolers. The tone is conversational and light. The graphics help demystify many of their key terms so that students can get a better understanding of each section's purpose.
(2) Short. My students hate reading long passages so I'm always on the lookout for solid, intellectual texts that are shorter. This book does just that.
(3) Practical. My students always ask, "What's in it for me? How applicable is this in my life?" and as a teacher, I'm constantly asking the same question. I don't want to teach skills that they cannot apply in their lives. I believe critical reading is a life skill, not just a skill for college-bounders. This guide offers practical suggestions on how to strengthen critical reading.
(4) Affordable. This price can't be beat. On their website they also offer bulk purchases so students can have their own copy.
I am thankful I stumbled upon this text. I've already annotated my copy and will be utilizing its methods next year.
The choice of texts could read a bit too complex, but stay tuned and you will find this little book a real treasure. Although high school students ( hard working ones) could find it useful, I think that uni students would benefit the most.
