RECENT SITE DIFFICULTIES: During the week of July 17, 2006, the server for the ReadingQuest.org website, based at the University of Virginia, was replaced. The website files and documents for ReadingQuest.org were not initially included in the server migration, rendering the site unavailable for several days. Please bear with us while we update all the pages and links for the new server configuration, and let us know if you encounter problems navigating the ReadingQuest.org content. We are glad you have chosen to visit ReadingQuest.org!

ReadingQuest: Making Sense in Social Studies

ReadingQuest: Making Sense in Social Studies is a website designed for social studies teachers who wish to more effectively engage their students with the content in their classes.

ReadingQuest is designed to provide you with the philosophical bases for sound comprehension strategy instruction, directions for a range of comprehension and content reading strategies, and printable handouts and masters for transparencies. You will be invited to think about how a social studies skills framework might help you choose the right strategies for your lessons.

You are welcome to proceed through ReadingQuest in any order you wish; navigation buttons on the left side of the pages, and text links across the bottom of pages, will permit ease of movement through the site. If however, you would like to proceed in an orderly fashion, then simply look for the red triangle-shaped forward and back buttons at the top and bottom of each page.
