Synopsis:
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, Content Area Reading remains the market-leading text in content literacy and maintains the authors' original objective-to offer an ambitious, coherent, and workable exploration of content literacy. With the underlying belief that students learn with texts, not necessarily from them, this respected text is designed to be an active learning tool, complete with real-world examples and research-based practices. Thoroughly updated and revised to incorporate topics that touch on contemporary issues such as content standards, assessment, diversity, struggling readers, the No Child Left Behind Legislation and Reading First, respected authors Rich Vacca and JoAnne Vacca continue to provide a framework that focuses on the ability to use reading, writing, speaking, and listening processes to learn subject matter across the curriculum. Accessible and comprehensible, this text takes students through the entire reading process using simple, jargon-free terminology. The methodology presented develops a foundation that can be applied across disciplines, meeting the needs of all students.

  • An updated and revised Chapter 3, “Struggling Readers and Writers” helps teachers design reading and writing remediation lessons around well-established reality and research-based components.
  • Greatly expanded coverage of Standards and Assessment in chapters 1 and 2 reflects current emphasis on formal, informal and standardized measurement.
  • New pedagogy in every chapter highlights current topics.

Reviewer Buzz:
“Content Area Reading combines the research theory with practical examples in a format which both beginning teachers and experienced teachers can easily use…this is best Content Area Literacy textbook for use in training pre-service teachers.”
Professor Mickey Bogart, Kansas State University

“I know from experience that the text changes teachers' and teacher candidates' views of what content reading is all about and how it should be taught.”
Professor Luther Kirk, Longwood University “This is a keeper, not a book you sell after you take the course.”
Dr. Deb Carr, Kings College
