The third edition of Literacy & Learning in the Content Areas will help readers build the knowledge, motivation, tools, and confidence they need as they integrate literacy into their content area classrooms.

This book's unique approach to teaching content area literacy in middle and high school classrooms will actively engage preservice and practicing teachers in reading and writing and the very activities that they will use to teach literacy to their own students. Rather than passively learning about strategies for incorporating content area literacy activities, readers get hands-on experience in such techniques as mapping/webbing, anticipation guides, booktalks, class websites, and journal writing and reflection.

Readers also learn how to integrate children's and young adult literature, primary sources, biographies, essays, poetry, and online content, communities, and websites into their classrooms. Each chapter of this valuable resource offers concrete teaching examples and practical suggestions to help make literacy relevant to students' content area learning.

Author Sharon Kane demonstrates how relevant reading, writing, speaking, listening, and visual learning activities can improve learning in content area subjects and help readers meet national content knowledge standards and benchmarks. This book demonstrates that a standards-based curriculum can use literacy strategies not as add-ons but as integral to content teaching itself.
