so, I'm looking for ideas/strategies in these areas or new ones! Textbook Previewing/summarizing strategies. I want to use the text only as a resource. Nonfiction articles I subscribe to cobblestoneonline.net, so finding interesting articles at an appropriate readability isn't a problem. Primary Sources I work with sixth graders, and the language is a real barrier to understanding. Historical Fiction A whole book is sooooooo time consuming . . . all though there are a number of great ones out there . .. Thanks for your thoughts!
