Summary

This successful guide--now in a revised and expanded second edition--gives teachers effective strategies to support adolescents' development of relevant literacy skills in specific disciplines. Demonstrating why disciplinary literacies matter, the authors discuss ways to teach close reading of complex texts; discipline-specific argumentation, communication, and writing skills; academic vocabulary; and more. The book draws on revealing interviews with content-area experts and professionals in history, science, mathematics, literature, the arts, and physical education. Teacher-friendly tools include 21 reproducible forms that also can be downloaded and printed, "Try It On!" practice activities, lesson plans, chapter anticipation guides, and links to recommended online teaching videos.

*Expanded coverage of math, more attention to evidence and sources used in different disciplines, new and updated expert interviews, and advice on how both teachers and students can use AI tools productively.
*Anticipation guides that invite reflection on key questions before, during, and after reading most chapters.
