This practical, engaging book introduces prospective and practicing teachers to K-12 content reading instruction.
The Fifth Edition of this popular book includes an expanded, up-to-date focus on standards-based teaching and learning. Unlike any other book in the market, the content progresses from general practices, cycles, and settings of instruction, to units of instruction and specific lesson planning. Well-respected authors Dave Moore, Pat Cunningham, Sharon Moore, and Jim Cunningham speak to educators new to the idea of content area literacy instruction and focus on instruction that is aligned with state standards and tests, yet promote literacy that goes beyond that which is tested.
Chapters on comprehension, vocabulary, writing, and studying include end-of-chapter applications that show how the practices apply to specific content areas such as science and mathematics.
