ReadingQuest: Making Sense in Social Studies http://www.readingquest.org/ ReadingQuest: Making Sense in Social Studies is a website designed for social studies teachers who wish to more effectively engage their students with the content in their classes.
ReadingQuest is designed to provide you with the philosophical bases for sound comprehension strategy instruction, directions for a range of comprehension and content reading strategies, and printable handouts and masters for transparencies. You will be invited to think about how a social studies skills framework might help you choose the right strategies for your lessons.
ReadingQuest challenges you to think about what students should know or be able to do and, perhaps more importantly, what it looks like when they are engaging the content towards the purpose of that lesson. While designed with social studies in mind, teachers of any content area can find the strategies and the process useful and helpful.
