"An outstanding resource for students that models best practices in its organization and design."
"The READING TO LEARN IN THE CONTENT AREAS text is a prized possession for my teachers . . . it is easy to read, offers good examples for them to use in their classrooms and they really like and continue to use the PAR lesson format as it benefits their students."
"Overall, I think this is one of the best books on the market. My students and I really appreciate the plethora of examples across the disciplines and the PAR reference guide to help them locate them. . . . I tell [colleagues] that the book is theoretically sound and it contains examples to which students can relate."
"I have been a fan of this text for many years. It seems to improve with every edition. Its greatest strengths are its in-depth topic coverage, range of activity examples (drawn from real classrooms), and integration of the PAR Lesson Framework."
