Summary: This practical, engaging text introduces prospective and practicing teachers to K-12 content reading instruction.

The Fifth Edition of this popular text includes an expanded, up-to-date focus on standards-based teaching and learning. Unlike any other text 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, S ...show moreharon 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.

Features

  • Addresses elementary, middle-school, and high-school teaching, making it appropriate for mixed grade levels.
  • Helps students apply content area literacy practices to all aspects of the curriculum with specific content area applications in English language arts, mathematics, science, second language, and social studies activities (Chs. 5-8).
  • Educators teach amidst an unprecedented system of accountability. Chapter 3, ''Instructional Units,'' details how to design instruction that recognizes district- and state-mandated accountability systems.
  • Treatment of diversity and multi-cultural classrooms is highlighted by chapter applications that include activities especially designed for students who are learning English (Chs. 5-8 & 10).
  • ''Looking Ahead'' and ''Key Ideas'' features open each chapter with a concise overview of that chapter's contents, followed by a list of major topics within that chapter.
  • ''Listen, Look, and Learn'' contains suggestions for checking out teaching tools with K-12 students and practicing teachers, giving learners an opportunity to develop ideas, while ''Try It Out'' sections encourage learners to apply those ideas (Chs. 1-10).
  • ''Looking Back'' sections summarize each chapter, highlighting important concepts, while ''Add to Your Journal'' pieces offer topics and questions to consider when responding to this book in journal form (Chs. 1-13).
New To This Edition
  • Chapter 1 contains a new section on developing learners' academic identities relative to content-area literacy and learning.
  • A new chapter on differentiating instruction (Ch. 10) addresses literacy-related accommodations for English Language Learners and special needs students.
  • New chapters on a variety of subjects including the nature of proficient reading at grades 4, 8, and 12 (Ch. 12); how to derive the most benefit from the No Child Left Behind legislation relative to content area literacy and learning (Ch. 13); and problem-solving cases for learners to evaluate (Ch. 11).
  • A wealth of new, specific teaching practices includes a list of before, during, and after reading techniques for guiding comprehension (Ch. 5) and vocabulary-based techniques for supporting comprehension (Ch. 6).
  • New headings highlight chapter concepts and reveal some new ways of organizing chapter content, such as Meaning Vocabulary (Ch. 6), which is now arranged according to promoting wide reading, teaching sets of words directly, promoting word consciousness, and teaching word learning strategies.
  • More examples of classroom teaching feature updated examples on using computer software and Web sites.
