This textbook is excellent for students."; Lavernia F. Hutchison, University of Houston-Central Campus ";There are many strengths in this text. I particularly like the way it is laid out. I believe that helping the students to see the importance of content literacy from the very beginning is extremely important. Immediately following this topic the students then move directly into diversity, which includes the understanding the meaning of language and culture. Both of these topics form the basis for the rest of the course. Overall, I believe that this book is an excellent text for teaching in the Content Area."; Randy M. Wood, Baylor University ";The strengths of this text include the authors in depth knowledge of the field of content area reading. Their chapter on assessing textbooks is invaluable for secondary teachers who don't understand the difficulty of some textbooks and the problems these texts can cause students. The chapter on multiculturalism and the ESL learner is a strength. The chapter on vocabulary is outstanding."; Patricia J.
