“If you are a teacher in grades 5–12, you need this book! Wolsey and Lapp have crafted an engaging, thoughtful work that is chock-full of hands-on, research-informed resources for teachers. Myriad examples and vignettes help us understand what it means to be effective communicators and producers of knowledge in math, history/social studies, science, English, the arts, physical education, and technical areas. The first edition of this book was excellent, but the second edition is even better—new content has been added and the ideas have been finely honed based on nearly a decade of teacher input.”

—Cynthia H. Brock, PhD, Wyoming Excellence Endowed Chair in Literacy Education, University of Wyoming

“Instructional possibilities jump off each page. The insights in this impressive book provide secondary teachers in all content areas with a fresh lens through which to view literacy in a rapidly changing world. As an ELA teacher of 25 years, I felt my perspective shift while reading about these imaginative and grounded literacy strategies and the thinking behind why they work.”

—Patrick Ganz, MAT, English teacher, Portsmouth High School, Portsmouth, New Hampshire

“Finally—a guide for content teachers that emphasizes the importance of what teachers teach for how they teach. Wolsey and Lapp provide concrete, research-based, classroom-tested best practices that will serve all content teachers. The second edition of this book is a treasure trove of resources.”

—Danny Brassell, PhD, reading motivation expert and former teacher educator
