Abstract: This professional practice paper describes a series of technology-enhanced activities designed to scaffold students’ understanding of academic reading, writing, and thinking. The authors provide specific strategies for enhancing students’ ability to make sense of academic text structures and content area information through engagement with videos, digital images, stories, songs, and texts. The instructional materials described in the paper are embedded in an open-access wiki, an online collaborative space where teachers and students can interact, collaborate, share information, and participate in online discussions. The materials described are available online for educational purposes. Geography, social studies, visual literacy, and global awareness are integrated into each activity. Assessment information is included.
