A continuing best-seller, this highly respected text prepares current and future middle and secondary educators to teach content area literacy in an era of high accountability—while providing in-depth, integrated attention to the needs of students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
Long appreciated for its scope of topics and examples, research-based information, and accessible writing style, the seventh edition of this book includes up-to-date information to help teachers address the literacy needs of English learners in their classrooms and today’s culturally diverse student population, while also addressing new frameworks for reading and writing instruction, including a sociocultural perspective on teaching and learning and insights from the New Literacies.
The ideas the authors, trusted experts in the field, present are backed by research, tested in real classrooms, and designed to help teachers apply what is useful to their own particular disciplines. The ideas they share—both new and from previous editions—were picked with respect for diversity in language, culture, and social environment.
