Summary: The market leader for twenty-five years, this text is an ambitious exploration of content literacy, while maintaining its reputation as workable and sensible.

This text is designed to be an active learning tool, complete with real-world examples and practices from which students can work. This organization reflects an integrative approach to literacy. Content area reading has grown into a reflective exploration of content literacy - the ability to use reading, more writing, speaking, and listening processes to learn subject matter across the curriculum. This text's organization reflects this interpretative approach to literacy.


  • Canadian content throughout.
  • Emphasizes constructivism and alternative learning environments.
  • Unique opening-chapter pedagogy: the ''Organizing Principle'' captures the major themes of each chapter, ''Graphic Organizer'' helps students visualize the relationships between important concepts, and the ''Frames of Mind'' questions act as a frame of reference, enabling students to interact with the ideas in the chapter.
  • Provides classroom examples from elementary, middle, and secondary schools in areas such as math, science, social science, health, music, and art disciplines.
  • End-of-chapter activities engage students in thinking about what they have read (''Minds On'') and applying information and new ideas (''Hands On'').
  • Many activities encourage group interaction and collaborative learning. less
