"Before" strategies activate students' prior knowledge and set a purpose for reading. "During" strategies help students make connections, monitor their understanding, generate questions, and stay focused. "After" strategies provide students an opportunity to summarize, question, reflect, discuss, and respond to text. Teachers should help students to understand why a strategy is useful, how it is used, and when it is appropriate. The most frequently researched strategies can be applied across content areas; other content-area specific strategies are emerging, and we will include them here in the future.

This legendary explorer's 1914-1916 Endurance expedition is one of the greatest survival stories of all time. Then, in April 2000, we returned to document Shackleton's final trial—the crossing of South Georgia—by three of the world's most distinguished mountaineers, Reinhold Messner, Conrad Anker and Stephen Venables.

This foundation unit outlines the fundamentals of history and offers suggestions for teaching and learning for primary and secondary students: What is history?
