Summary

The third edition of this student-centered text is grounded in its in-depth and integrated attention to the content literacy needs of students from diverse cultural and language backgrounds. In this new edition, Alvermann and Phelps have added emphasis to the issues of struggling readers, technology, writing across the curriculum, and a social constructionist framework for learning. Connected with major research and theoretical frameworks, the text provides concepts and strategies for practical use in today's diverse classrooms.
