Adolescent Literacy in the Academic Disciplines

"From leading authorities in both adolescent literacy and content-area teaching, this book addresses the particular challenges of literacy learning in each of the major academic disciplines. Chapters focus on how to help students successfully engage withtexts and ideas in English/literature, science, math, history, and arts classrooms. The book shows that while general strategies for reading informational texts are essential, they are not enough--students also need to learn processing strategies that are quite specific to each subject and its typical tasks or problems. Vignettes from exemplary classrooms illustrate research-based ways to build content-area knowledge while targeting essential reading and writing skills"-- Provided by publisher.

It is arguably the most comprehensive, usefully detailed, and original textbook/resource book on English education. The authors have significantly revised this edition to take account of current trends. They have dropped much of the rationale and theory, because the essentials of the approach they advocate no longer need justification-having been adopted in the last decade under such rubrics as whole lan...

Teaching with the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, PreK-2

The purpose and intent of the Common Core standards for English Language Arts (ELA), as well as Literacy in History/Social Studies and Science Education, are the focus of this book. Each of the chapters addresses one of the major English Language Arts domains: literature, informational texts, foundational skills, writing, speaking and listening, language, technology, and assessment. The objective of the chapters is twofold: to provide a theoretical background and detailed explanation of each of the CCSS/ELA standards, as well as practical suggestions, classroom vignettes, models, instructional resources, and unit ideas to implement the standards"--
