From the Publisher"Finally, a book to help teacher educators who are called upon to teach the course ‘Reading in the Content Areas.’ In reading this book, I felt I had struck the proverbial goldmine: terrific course projects that will model for pre-service and in-service teachers precisely the kinds of metacognitive and discipline-based strategies that will be engaging and effective for their future students."
—Linda Miller Cleary, professor of English education, Morse Alumni Professor of Distinguished Teaching, University of Minnesota, Duluth
"Finally, a book on content area literacy with a bigger vision concerning what it means for adolescents to read in the disciplines and how teachers can support such reading."
—Stephen B. Kucer, associate professor of language and literacy education, Division of Curriculum and Teaching, Fordham University-Lincoln Center
"Braunger and colleagues offer a set of practices for engaging preservice teachers in learning how to use literacy in content teaching. Their approach is a vast improvement over former models of content-area literacy teacher education. The book is thick with resources, strategies, and reflective practices, and I look forward to using it as a resource for my own teacher education and professional development practices in large urban middle schools and high schools."
—Elizabeth Birr Moje, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor Educational Studies, University of Michigan
"Unique in content area texts, the instructional strategies depicted in this work are grounded in a coherent theoretical frame and presented in real-life classroom complexities. I see many ways of using and adapting the assignments and classroom practices in my own preservice and graduate courses."
—Jayne DeLawter, professor of reading and language education, Sonoma State University
"It is refreshing to read a book geared for teaching preservice and practicing teachers that respects the knowledge they bring to the classroom and builds upon their abilities to take critical and inquiring stances on content area literacy."
—Robert Anthony Fecho, associate professor of teacher education, University of Georgia
