To acquire content knowledge through reading, students must understand the complex components and diverse purposes of informational texts, as emphasized in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This practical book illuminates the ways in which a text?s purpose, structure, details, connective language, and construction of themes combine to create meaning. Classroom-tested instructional recommendations and "kid-friendly" explanations guide teachers in helping students to identify and understand the role of these elements in different types of informational texts. Numerous student work samples, excerpts from exemplary books and articles, and a Study Guide with discussion questions and activities for professional learning add to the book?s utility. ÿ

"Given the number of well-developed informational sources available to educators and students and the focus of departments of education on learning from these sources, there is so much potential for students to grow as critical consumers of information. Being able to read informational sources closely or watch and listen to sources carefully--across all content areas--creates a path for being able to understand the world better. More than ever before, close reading has become an essential approach with students and the informational sources they are attempting to understand. In addition to addressing instruction with traditional printed texts, I address how to teach for understanding of content in videos and infographics. I have also developed a three-phase plan for learning and a matching template for lesson planning"--

Over the last decades Media Education has gradually obtained an educational status in many countries throughout the world although few countries have actually incorporated this subject in their formal school curricula. Where Media Education is taught today, it is principally carried out using a relaxed, pluralistic and a cross- or multidisciplinary approach. This book sets out to explore this new approach to the subject via chapters that are representative of ongoing work by leading Media Education researchers in nine different countries and from all five continents. Media Education is continually evolving and the individual chapters indicate that the passion for the subject is global while the actual translations of practices and policies are very much local. The book expands the debate about Media Education beyond the traditions and interests of one part of the world to encompass the needs of the rest.
