Developing Readers in the Academic Disciplines, 2nd Edition



Escape the "one-size-fits-all" approach to literacy, and discover a straightforward instructional model for disciplinary literacy that will show you how to mentor middle and high school learners to become “academic insiders.”

Developing Readers in the Academic Disciplines shows how to help students adjust their thinking to comprehend a range of complex texts that fall outside their reading comfort zones. It provides the following supports for teachers:

  • Instructional tools that adapt generic literacy practices to discipline-specific variations
  • Strategies for frontloading instruction to activate and build knowledge
  • New approaches for encouraging inquiry around disciplinary texts
  • In-depth exploration of the role of argumentation in informational text

Numerous examples from science, mathematics, history and social studies, English/language arts, and related arts show you what vibrant learning really looks like in various classroom settings.
