From the Back Cover:

A continuing best-seller, this highly respected text prepares current and future middle and secondary educators to teach content area literacy in an era of high accountability—while providing in-depth, integrated attention to the needs of students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.

 

Long appreciated for its scope of topics and examples, research-based information, and accessible writing style, the seventh edition of this book includes up-to-date information to help teachers address the literacy needs of English learners in their classrooms and today’s culturally diverse student population, while also addressing new frameworks for reading and writing instruction, including a sociocultural perspective on teaching and learning and insights from the New Literacies.

 

The ideas the authors, trusted experts in the field, present are backed by research, tested in real classrooms, and designed to help teachers apply what is useful to their own particular disciplines. The ideas they share—both new and from previous editions—were picked with respect for diversity in language, culture, and social environment.

 

Exciting changes to the new Seventh Edition include:

 

  • Practical help for focusing on the most important ideas in the text through Essential Questions that begin each chapter and help frame readers’ attention
  •  Additional help for organizing the principles and strategies presented in the text through the unique Learning Cycle tool
  •  Ideas to help teachers in math, science, social studies, fine arts, and physical education assess resources in their own professional journals through suggested readings
  •  A revised chapter on assessment that enables readers to better construct conditional knowledge of assessment strategies.
  •  And increased attention to such critical areas as:
    • The disciplinary literacies associated with vocabulary development and comprehension in a wider variety of disciplines, including fine arts and physical education
    • Disciplinary ways of thinking following Hal Herber’s principle of “content determines process”
    • English language (EL) learners
    • New literacies for the twenty-first century, including activities for use in both traditional and online classrooms
    • Multimodal texts 
    • Adaptations of well-known strategies to address disciplinary ways of thinking and reading
    • Updated technology tips with URLs for videos that enhance comprehension and critical thinking
    • Updated tips for teaching readers who struggle to read their assignments
