Rave Reviews for the Fourth Edition of
Teaching Through Text:

"The major strengths of this text are its elegant conceptual frame (first the global lesson planning frameworks and then the before-during-after reading strategies) and its conscious use of connections to technology."
Sharon Walpole, University of Delaware

"Due to the extra care the authors took to make Teaching Through Text a ‘real-life example’ of a reader-friendly textbook, the text itself becomes a more accessible, and therefore more rewarding text from which to learn about content area literacy instruction."
Laura Jones, Nazareth College of Rochester

"It is an easy text to read and use. Summaries are brief and provide a nice closure to the chapters. Content information is easily located and dissected for class discussion and presentation."
Isaac Willis Larison, Xavier University

About the Fourth Edition:
Bringing all the research up-to-date, this Fourth Edition of Teaching Through Text provides a broad range of techniques to enhance students’ literacy development and learning across the curriculum. Authored by two of the most respected literacy researchers, this text focuses on describing, illustrating, and applying both teacher-directed and student-centered strategies for content area literacy in middle and secondary grades.
