From the Back Cover

With the Fifth Edition of this practical and engaging book, this respected and dynamic team of authors introduces teachers to K-12 content reading instruction. Unique in its field, Developing Readers and Writers in the Content Areas progresses from general practices and settings to units of instruction and specific lesson planning. Up-to-date focus on standards-based teaching and learning addresses elementary, middle-school, and high-school teaching, and it is also appropriate for mixed grade levels.

New features of this edition include plans on how to benefit most from No Child Left Behind legislation, a brand-new chapter on differentiating instruction to tackle literacy for English Learners and special needs students, and a wealth of examples of classroom teaching integrating computer software and websites.

Developing Readers and Writers in the Content Areas contains chapters on comprehension, vocabulary, writing, and studying, and helps readers apply content-area literacy practices to all aspects of the curriculum, from English language arts to science and mathematics. Distinctive aids such as “Looking Ahead” and “Key Ideas” provide summaries and topics of each chapter, while “Try It Out” sections encourage learners to apply the ideas in their own classrooms.


More About the Author

Sharon Arthur Moore lives in the desert Southwest with her husband ("a hunk") and yellow lab. Their children live far away in cities she likes to visit. They don't come home often enough, but that is probably due to them being gainfully employed.

She enjoys travel, reading, word games, and all manner of company. She fancies herself a cook, but not a chef, and loves feeding family and friends original recipes that sometimes turn out to be quite tasty. She is addicted to cookbook reading and TV cooking shows.

Sharon is thrilled to have three fiction books in print with more to come. She writes in a wide range of genre, thus never really mastering any one of them. You can find her mysteries under Sharon Arthur Moore, her romances under Angelica French, and some unpubbed-as-yet paranormal fiction under River Glynn.

She takes writing classes on-line and in real life, and buys books on writing like she is the sole support of the writing education community. As a "frequent buyer" of books at Amazon.com, she is negotiating with them for freebies.

A teacher at heart, she "transitioned" ("retired" is such an old person word) after 39 years as an educator to full-time writing. She is in various writing critique groups and loves sharing with others what she is learning.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was delivered to me promptly, however a large hole had been cut out from the front cover with scissors. The hole was then hidden by a sticker on the outside and inside of the book.
