This book is known for its detailed and practical explanations of reading, writing, and study strategies. Its motivational pedagogy helps pre-service teachers learn to improve their students' progress, making the text especially appealing to the non-literacy teaching majors who are required to take this course.

This text features a unique application of literacy and study skills in all secondary subject areas in two hallmark chapters on Content Area Teaching. Its proven pedagogy includes the popular "Meeting the Challenge" features that appear in every chapter.

  • New! The text's chapter on Diversity, "Content Literacy for Diverse Students," has been completely re-written to include new coverage of English Language Learners, cultural diversity, and students with special needs. It features practical strategies and applications for the regular classroom teacher, including a new "Meeting the Challenge" feature on collaboration between general and special education teachers.
  • New! A glossary helps readers--many of whom may not be familiar with literacy-related terms--to understand key terminology.
  • New! A new matrix of content-area coverage lists places throughout the book where material on specific content areas can be found.
  • New! A content area marginal icon highlights where specific content material appears in the text, enabling prospective content area secondary teachers to easily find material relevant to their field of study.
  • The new edition features expanded and strengthened technology coverage throughout the text.
  • Updates to Chapter 3, "A Conceptual Approach to Developing Meaningful Vocabulary," include revised sections on Word Knowledge, Context Clue Strategies, and a new "Meeting the Challenge" feature that explores the use of technology in vocabulary learning.
  • The authors updated content area teaching examples throughout the text.
