“This volume provides a rich collection of ideas and strategies from top scholars in the field. It offers educators a roadmap for successfully promoting adolescents' comprehension, vocabulary development, and independent learning.

It describes ways teachers can expand their repertoire of instructional support across the content areas and engage students in close reading of increasingly complex texts.”

It reflects a commitment to providing students with high-quality instruction and equal access in all content areas—not just to meet current mandates, but to develop their critical thinking skills. As a leader committed to urban education, I find this book a valuable resource.”

This volume continues to be one of the finest texts for teacher education and professional development in adolescent literacy. At a time when the contexts for literacy and literacy education have become complex and sometimes confusing, this book provides needed direction for us all.”

“Secondary school teachers and curriculum coordinators are scouring the pedagogical landscape looking for resources like this one. The second edition offers insightful suggestions that will help us support our students in close reading of increasingly complex texts that incorporate challenging academic vocabulary. The book provides research-based strategies for helping students become more adept at writing from sources and using evidence to support their answers.”

—Brian Kesel, MS, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, West Genesee Central Schools, Camillus, New York

“Bringing together prominent thinkers and leaders, this comprehensive, highly accessible volume offers compelling descriptions of exemplary practices, grounded in the latest research. From a stance of respect for adolescents, the authors share their remarkable insights and unique approaches for engaging students' literacies. Not only does the volume address academic realities, but it also maintains a deliberate and persuasive emphasis on adolescents' lifelong learning and personal fulfillment. This 'must-read' book will inform and inspire novice and experienced teachers and teacher educators.”
