Improve student outcomes in reading and literacy with the latest edition of this bestselling text

The newly revised Third Edition of Reading for Understanding: How Reading Apprenticeship Improves Disciplinary Learning in Secondary and College Classrooms is the latest iteration of the best-selling, landmark book in the field of adolescent literacy. The book contains strategies for boosting the reading independence of middle, secondary, and college students.

Research conducted by NSF, IES, and OIIhas validated the model taught in Reading for Understanding, demonstrating its effectiveness in raising students’ reading achievement levels.

The authors teach a clear and concise instructional framework for students at all learning levels, from those with special learning needs to those taking honors and Advanced Placement courses. The book also includes:

  • A direct correlation to disciplinary literacy, making the book an even more valuable resource in a wide range of classrooms
  • Explanation of the social and personal dimensions for building a foundation for engaged learning
  • Discussions of the value of setting aside dedicated class time for independent, silent reading

With collaboration tips that go beyond the classroom and advice on building a cognitive “reading toolbox,” Reading for Understanding is an indispensable resource for teachers at the Grade 6 and up, literacy coaches, reading teachers, community college instructors, and other school leaders.
