About this title


Well established as a clear, comprehensive course text in five prior editions, this book has now been extensively revised, with a focus on disciplinary literacy. It offers a research-based framework for helping students in grades 6–12 learn to read, write, and communicate academic content and to develop the unique literacy, language, and problem-solving skills required by the different disciplines. In an engaging, conversational style, William G. Brozo presents effective instruction and assessment practices. Special attention is given to adaptations to support diverse populations, including English language learners. Pedagogical features include chapter-opening questions plus new case studies, classroom dialogues, practical examples, sample forms, and more. (Prior edition title: Content Literacy for Today's Adolescents, Fifth Edition.)

New to this Edition:
*Incorporates a decade of research, current standards, and the latest concepts and practices related to disciplinary literacy.
*Chapter on culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
*Expanded coverage of the use of technology and multiple text sources, such as graphic novels and digital texts.
*Increased attention to academic vocabulary and language.
