Description

Students in middle school classes are increasingly expected to learn social studies content using text sources (Toste, Fuchs, & Fuchs, 2013). To keep up with today’s literacy demands and be adequately prepared for postsecondary success, students need to be able to engage with text in a way that expands their knowledge and understanding of key information (Biancarosa & Snow, 2006).
