With READING TO LEARN IN THE CONTENT AREAS, Eighth Edition, future educators discover how they can teach students to use reading, discussion, and writing as vehicles for learning in any discipline. The book explores how the increased availability of computers, instructional software, social media, and Internet resources--as well as the rise of electronic literacy in general--have affected the ways children learn and create meaning from their world. The authors' unique lesson framework for instruction, PAR (Preparation/Assistance/Reflection), extends throughout the book. A reader-friendly presentation, balanced approach, strong research base, and inclusion of real-life examples from a variety of subject areas and grade levels have helped make this resource one of the most popular and effective books on the market.
