Content Area Reading shows pre- and in-service content area teachers how to use literacy-related instructional strategies to help students think and learn with all kinds of print and digital texts. The emphasis is on the comprehensive content, including an ever-expanding knowledge base in the areas of content literacy, instructional scaffolding, differentiated instruction, student diversity, and new literacies. This text continues to emphasize a functional approach to content literacy instruction. In a functional approach, content area teachers learn how to integrate literacy-related strategies into instructional routines without sacrificing the teaching of content. The  13th Edition is rigorously updated to reflect current theory, research, and practice related to literacy and learning across the curriculum.
