In an era of high accountability, the sixth edition of Content Area Reading and Literacy  provides in-depth and integrated attention to the needs of students from diverse cultural and language backgrounds, especially the literacy needs of English learners. 

 

A continuing best-seller, this well-respected text has been lauded for its scope of topics and examples, its research-based information, and its accessible writing style.  This new edition also addresses new frameworks for reading and writing instruction, including a sociocultural perspective on teaching and learning and insights from the New Literacies

  • Includes more classroom-tested and research-based teaching and learning strategies to use across the curriculum throughout the text.
  • Focuses on the key differences among the disciplines with respect to vocabulary and comprehension.
  • Provides a new overview of literacy-related difficulties encountered in different content areas, such as:
    • English/Language arts--problems are often related to the broad range of genres students must read, such as poetry, short stories, novels, literature, mysteries, or historical fiction.
    • Science and math--the density of the text can be problematic and students may have to handle  several different text structures and content structures.
    • Social studies--information can often be categorized as related to people, places, or events. 
  • Takes into account the new 21st century literacies and the disciplinary literacies associated with vocabulary development and comprehension, particularly those known to cause difficulty in the different subject areas.
  • Includes strategies for comprehending online.
  • Emphasizes differentiated writing for different disciplines.
