Content Reading in Four European Union Countries
Brozo, William G.; Flynt, E. Sutton
Reading Teacher, v63 n2 p170-173 Oct 2009
Is content literacy exclusively a U.S. phenomenon? In this installment we report on the state of content literacy from four international perspectives. Descriptions of content literacy from Ireland, Sweden, Germany, and Bulgaria offer insights into (a) the value policymakers may be placing on reading practices for content learning, and (b) the degree to which teachers employ content literacy practices. The contributors of these descriptions are recognized literacy scholars within their own countries. They provide information on national curriculum standards and guidelines that speak directly or indirectly to content literacy, as well as about any specific content literacy activity occurring in classrooms. ["Content Reading in Four European Union Countries" was written with Gerry Shiel, Ulla-Britt Persson, Christine Garbe, and Lydia Dachkova.]
