Well-known literacy advocate Allen (Words, Words, Words: Teaching Vocabulary in Grades 4-12) has written what he calls a "practical guide [for] improving literacy" to be used in conjunction with Joy Hakim's 11-volume A History of U.S., a source book for middle schools. She focuses not on the content of American history but instead on strategies to seduce students into an interest in learning about American history. The book includes a somewhat hortatory introduction, 96 pages of methods, 18 pages of "graphic organizers" (various blank forms or checklists students can use to chart and clarify their progress), many copies of student work, and nearly 40 pages of bibliographical resources. The sections cover such general areas as building foundations, prereading strategies, providing ongoing support, and making learning meaningful. Like most such books (e.g., Maryann Manning's The Theme Immersion Compendium for Social Studies Teaching and Jean B. Schumaker's Adapting Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science Materials for the Inclusive Classroom), this one is chock-full of real-world methodologies designed to overcome resistance and apathy from students who, at least as presented in the introduction, are generally ignorant and unmotivated. Suitable for textbook collections, particularly in those middle schools that use Hakim's A History of U.S.-Peter Dollard, Mt. Pleasant, MI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
