Supported Literacy for Adolescents, written by nationally recognized experts, introduces an innovative and field-tested instructional framework for preparing secondary students to succeed academically in a fast-changing and globally networked world. Filled with examples from science, history, literature, and special education classrooms, the book shows how teachers can enable diverse students, including under-performers, to develop critical thinking and other essential competencies along with the "multi-literacy" tools needed to engage in twenty-first century content learning.
