Tackle Box (Education)

Each year, students enrolled in EDUC-412, Literacy in the Content Areas, learn the theories and best practices for empowering all students to read, write, and learn more effectively.

These future teachers of history, English, mathematics, science, art, music, and foreign languages each research and present information about specific literacy strategies that will make reading more purposeful and meaningful for middle school and high school students in all content areas. At the end of the term, all of the presented strategies are collected into a publication for each future teacher to use as a resource for their future teaching.

The publication is called a Tackle Box because, much like a fishing tackle box, this document has lures, hooks, and bait to help the teachers reel in their students as they work with text in the classroom. Since different schools of fish require different lures or bait, this tackle box of strategies provides a variety of useful gear for all teachers.

The future teachers in this class find this resource useful and valuable in their classrooms. Frequently, other classroom teachers have asked to borrow this resource, so we have decided to make it accessible to everyone.


ZAGA is the little sibling of SAGA, Augustana's annual literature and art magazine. ZAGA produces smaller installments of art and literature from Augie's student body in zine format.
