Developing Readers in the Academic Disciplines, Second Edition

Being literate in an academic discipline means more than simply being able to read and comprehend text; it means you can think, speak, and write as a historian, scientist, mathematician, or artist. Doug Buehl strips away the one-size-fits-all approach to content-area literacy and presents a much-needed instructional model for disciplinary literacy, showing how to mentor middle and high school learners to become “academic insiders” who are college and career ready.
