Well established as a clear, comprehensive course text in five prior editions, this book has now been extensively revised, with a focus on disciplinary literacy. It offers a research-based framework for helping students in grades 6-12 learn to read, write, and communicate academic content and to develop the unique literacy, language, and problem-solving skills required by the different disciplines. In an engaging, conversational style, William G. Brozo presents effective instruction and assessment practices, illustrated with extended case studies and sample forms. Special attention is given to adaptations to support diverse populations, including English language learners.(Prior edition title: Content Literacy for Today's Adolescents, Fifth Edition.)

New to This Edition:
  • Shift in focus to disciplinary literacy as well as general content-area learning.
  • Chapter on culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
  • Incorporates a decade of research and the goals of the Common Core State Standards.
  • Increased attention to academic vocabulary, English language learners, the use of technology, and multiple text sources, such as graphic novels and digital texts.
  • Pedagogical features: chapter-opening questions plus new case studies, classroom dialogues, practical examples, sample forms, and more.
