This book reminds us that building students' literacy skills can and must be done by educators in every discipline. By including many specific strategies and real classroom examples, Charron, Fenton, and Harris provide all teachers with resources needed to integrate the teaching of literacy in any content area. -- Susan Szachowicz, Senior Fellow, International Center for Leadership in Education
This text is an immensely useful and enlivening overview of techniques and tools that teachers in all content areas will find useful in doing their disciplinary work. The unique contribution of this book is the promotion of wide-awake reading in service of developing competent and reflective writers of all kinds of texts. The approach starts with the foregrounding of purpose, and is highly motivating and assistive in ways that will transform teacher practice-but even more importantly-that will transform student attitudes, engagement, and achievement. -- Jeffrey D. Wilhelm, Distinguished Professor of English Education at Boise State University; Author of "Reading Unbound: Why Kids Need to Read What They Want, and Why We Should Let Them"
The instructional strategies in this thoughtful and engaging book support the reading/writing connection and remind us that in order to become confident and competent readers and writers, students need to write frequently and think critically across the content areas. -- Carol Booth Olson, Director of the UCI/National Writing Project and Associate Professor in the Department of Education at the University of California, Irvine
This wonderful book-rich in both ideas and practices-addresses the core problem in American education: how to set (and reach) high standards for a broad range of students. While focused on writing, this book recognizes and illuminates the essential interconnections of multiple literacies and the essential value of student diversity. Written be insightful and creative teachers, the book is not just about writing, it is a book that elevates what teaching should, and can, be. -- David Rose, developmental neuropsychologist, educator, and co-founder of CAST-an organization devoted to promoting Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles
