Putting It All Together uses a unique model-analysis-application approach. It begins with course or workshop participants reading authentic lesson plans designed by real secondary teachers to teach content with supportive reading strategies. Through an inductive approach, participants read four sample lesson plans--art, science, English and one in their content area (music, business education, social studies, special education, physical education, mathematics, foreign language, consumer/family science, health)--in order to discern the parts of the Directed Reading Lesson. Once readers understand what the end product--the lesson plan format--looks like, each step of the Directed Reading Lesson is explicated for the "what, why, and how." After each step is explained, participants are guided through a series of questions to prepare the parts of a Directed Reading Lesson for their own students.
