The 3rd Edition of Literacy & Learning in the Content Areas helps readers build the knowledge, motivation, tools, and confidence they need as they integrate literacy into their middle and high school content area classrooms. Its unique approach to teaching content area literacy actively engages preservice and practicing teachers in reading and writing and the very activities that they will use to teach literacy to their own studentsin middle and high school classrooms . 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 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 at the same time help readers meet national content knowledge standards and benchmarks.

"This book focuses on how elementary teachers might plan for and incorporate digitally-supported disciplinary literacy into English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies to reach all learners. To do so, the authors present the six-phase Planning Elementary Digitally-Supported Literacy (PEDDL) Framework, along with four core practices useful for considering elementary disciplinary literacy. After grounding disciplinary literacy in elementary grades, how it might support all learners, and the rationale for its inclusion in K-5 instruction, core practices are presented, along with a rationale behind those practices. Then, the authors provide an in-depth overview of the PEDDL Framework with examples and research-based underpinnings of each phase. Finally, a paired chapter approach then guides readers through each of the four core disciplines to first overview practices particular to each discipline that are appropriate for elementary grades and then provide detailed lesson planning approaches using the PEDDL Framework for each. Supplementary lesson plan examples are also offered in this book for extended consideration of digitally-supported disciplinary literacy across K-5"--

"In this book," writes Heidi Mills, "you'll learn how to plan for inquiry in a way that promotes literacy throughout the day and across the content areas." With Learning for Real, you'll find a rich array of resources for truly integrating a balanced literacy approach into every corner of the curriculum. "We all know how exhilarating it is to learn something new," writes Heidi, "to develop expertise around a passion." She and her colleagues invite students into that experience, while developing five habits necessary for the content learning inside and outside of the classroom: carefully observing the world by using the tools and strategies of a discipline posing questions and investigating problems from numerous perspectives drawing information and evidence from primary and secondary sources, both nonfiction and narrative using the language of inquiry while reflecting on and sharing new learning effectively with others employing reflection and self-evaluation to grow and change. To help you adapt instruction to your curricular and standards-based goals, Heidi includes planning guidelines, classroom-tested units of study, and from-the-field video clips of exemplar inquiry-driven teaching. "Provide students with experiences that help them grow into strategic readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and social scientists," writes Heidi Mills. "Devote as much time to teaching children how to learn as what to learn." Link literacy and content with Learning for Real and discover that when students know how to learn, they exceed our expectations, and show what's possible in genuine inquiry-based classrooms.

This book describes and documents an exciting new approach to educating literacy teachers. The authors show how to help teachers develop their own critical literacy, while also preparing them to accelerate the literacy learning of struggling readers. The text takes readers inside a literacy lab in a high-poverty urban elementary school, reveals the instructional approach in action, and provides many excellent examples of critically responsive teaching. Featuring a synthesis of several fields of theory and research, this book: illustrates teacher preparation and development as personal and social transformation - demonstrating that this process requires changing the ways teachers think about students, language, culture, literacy, learning, and themselves as educators; provides pedagogical tools - including the history of the innovative literacy lab, the context of the instructional interactions, and the transition from a university-based to a school-based project; and combines critical and accelerative literacy instruction, showing how teachers can accelerate the slowest developing readers in their classrooms and also build a sense of engagement for students with the social world.
