This practical, engaging text introduces prospective and practicing teachers to K-12 content reading instruction, describing principled teaching practices (Part I) then presenting narrative accounts to show how teachers implement the practices in grade-specific classrooms (Part II). 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. The Fourth Edition of this popular text includes an expanded, up-to-date focus on standards-based teaching and learning. Reading and writing is integrated and now an updated coverage of trade books and computer technology reflects current trends. Text content progresses from general practices, cycles, and settings of instruction, to units of instruction, to specific lesson planning. This text focuses on instruction that is aligned with state standards and tests yet promotes literacy which goes beyond what is tested. This text speaks to educators new to the idea of content area literacy instruction.Moore, David W. is the author of 'Developing Readers and Writers in the Content Areas, K-12', published 2002 under ISBN 9780321079763 and ISBN 0321079760.
