From the Publisher:

This book is intended largely to introduce teachers-to-be to the "why" and "how" of promoting basic and higher-order literacy. It does so in the context of promoting reading and thinking as a collateral part of specific subject instruction, and in an increasingly interconnected local and global environment.

From the Back Cover:

Promote comprehension...

Help students read to learn, not just learn to read.

The Fourth Edition of this well-respected text introduces teachers-to-be and practicing teachers to the reasons for and means of promoting basic and higher-order literacy across the disciplines. The authors discuss content area literacy in the context of promoting reading and thinking as an integrated part of specific subject instruction. Throughout, the text engages teachers in thinking critically, constructively, practically, and professionally about the art and science of teaching and literacy development.

Now updated and revised, this Fourth Edition features increased attention to the needs of ESL/ELL students, updated coverage on the role of technology in content area learning, and new material on emergent content area literacy.

Highlights

  • Coverage that spans specific subject instruction to school-wide content
    area literacy programming.
  • Methods for pre-reading, si lent reading, and post-reading skills, helping students into, through, and beyond their reading and learning assignments.
  • Instruction on validated means of improving reading comprehension in accord with the “scientifically based reading research” called for by No Child Left Behind and the National Institute for Literacy.
  • Intelligent, engaging, and intellectually robust discussions of important
    educational and professional issues.
  • Practical and user-friendly teaching methods.
