<>Using the uniqueLearners in Contextframework, top literacy researcher Mark Conley sets the new standard for content area reading books. This new and much-awaited book provides teachers with tools and techniques for helping adolescents develop a full complement of literacy skills necessary for learning across all content areas in todayrs"s environment. Due to ongoing advancements in technology, new demands of higher educational standards, state testing and the diverse needs of todayrs"s adolescents, the field of adolescent literacy is rapidly changing.Content Area Literacy: Learners in Contextprovides teachers with tools for using content literacy to meet these demands by focusing on the learners and their unique contexts. Using cutting edge research in the field, Dr. Conley not only presents research-based teaching practices, but also connects the practices to learning strategies for students. As a result, instructors no longer have to "invent" practical applications or "suggest" learning outcomes for students. As Dr. Donald Deshler from the Center for Research on Learning states "Dr. Conley has done a brilliant job of describing the context within which educational solutions must be generated and the form that these solutions must take in order to be embraced by teachers as well as to be sufficiently powerful to significantly improve student outcomes."
