Intended for use in undergraduate or postbaccalaureate teacher preparation programs, during staff development activities, and in introductory graduate teacher education courses, this book introduces K-12 teachers to the topic of helping students use reading and writing as tools for learning. This third edition retains features of earlier editions--narrative accounts of teaching, a focus on basic learning processes, a thorough examination of key concepts, integration of elementary and secondary instruction, integration of reading and writing, and pedagogical features.

Chapters in the book are (1) Content Area Reading and Writing; (2) Instructional Units and Classroom Organization; (3) Reading Materials, Reports, and Responses; (4) Comprehension; (5) Meaning Vocabulary; (6) Writing; (7) Studying; (8) Student Inquiry; (9) Primary Level; (10) Intermediate Level; (11) Middle School Level; and (12) High School Level.
