Related to our PDs on Close Reading, Turner's Graph of the Week is a great website for teaching graph-reading, which is a kind of literacy just like reading words.
Check it out and use it as needed for openers, special lessons, or topical tie-ins. Its a great way to teach reading in any course. Graphs relate to math, science, social studies, languages, and encore subjects.
