First published in 1981, Content Area Reading: Literacy and Learning Across the Curriculum, has undergone multiple revisions over the years to reflect the changing field content area literacy and its ever adapting literacy practices. Teachers across the curriculum will enjoy the books focus on what it means to be literate in the 21st century. The text helps content area teachers plan and adapt literacy and learning to meet the needs of all students, including struggling readers and writers. Part 1, “Learners, Literacies, and Texts”, places the focus on the cultural, linguistic, and academic diversity of today’s learners; their personal and academic literacies, and the kinds of texts that are integral to their lives in and out of schools. Part 2, “Instructional Practices and Strategies”, contains a multitude of evidence-based instructional strategies waiting to be adapted to meet the conceptual demands inherent in disciplinary learning. Through their revisions, Vacca, Vacca, and Mraz continue to provide a framework that focuses on the ability to use reading, writing, speaking, and listening processes to learn subject matter across the curriculum.
