Partnering for Content Literacy: PRC2 in Action instructs teachers how to successfully develop students’ interests in and strategies for reading and comprehending informational texts that support content learning. Written by a team of teachers, literacy leaders, and university project members, this book tackles the challenges students have with language learning and content area reading. Partnering for Content Literacy:  PRC2 in Action was based around teacher concerns that students floundered when confronted with difficult textbooks and the need to use academic vocabulary and language. Teachers and literacy leaders wanted to develop ways to insure these students could be successful in learning. What evolved is a practical and powerful set of assessments and instructional practices focused on partners reading short books and articles together in a process called Partner Reading and Content, Too (PRC2). This book provides ideas about how to create a rich program in informational reading, including descriptions of specific assessments and ways to modify them for teachers’ own students.
