  Content Area Reading...Why?  How?

Definition: Content-area literacy refers to the ability to learn through reading. Learning in all content areas is supported by strong reading comprehension strategies and study skills. Students need to know how to apply a variety of reading comprehension strategies to different types of texts, analyze the structures and features of expository (informational) texts, and select and vary their reading strategies for different texts and purposes. Teachers need to model and provide explicit instruction in these skills and strategies and provide students with frequent opportunities for guided and independent practice using them. (Source:  Supplement to the Program Certification Handbook Elementary Reading Instruction; Adopted Content Specifications for the Reading Instruction Competence Assessment (RICA), California Commission
on Teacher Credentialing, Sacramento, California, January, 1998)

Reading in PE/Health is more that reading about sport/fitness.  Everyone needs to be

knowledgeable about health issues which impact them and their family—prevention, treatment,

knowledgeable consumers of health products.  Social image of PE is the biggest barrier—students

 must be active and therefore PE isn’t a place for reading.  Need to change this mindset. 

Time is also a major factor along with the spaces not being conducive to reading.  Teachers

need to model the importance of reading.  Provided some excellent strategies:  Vocabulary on

the Wall; Following Directions (Cause/Effect); Sequencing; Compare/Contrast; Mystery Athlete

(can be modified with games).  Disagreed with reading while on the exercise bike/treadmill. 

Students should be actively engaged in the activity—charting their heart rates, focusing on

specific muscle groups, breathing techniques, lung capacity, sharing with partners and getting

to know their bodies and the different ranges of exercise for fitness.
