Reading instruction across the content areas is critical. I agree that words have power and the three tiers of vocabulary are important to address. Students really need be able to use different levels of vocabulary in order to comprehend the reading material and respond to questions.

I think Emily made so many good points. One that I really related to was that..all subjects and content area have reading in them! With the world of technology taking over, this is a great reminder for teacher and students. The other thing that I liked was how she reminded us to point out text features and to tell the students where their eyes should be.
