Numerous hands-on tools and techniques demonstrate the effectiveness of content-area instruction for students in a wide variety of school settings, particularly English language learners, struggling readers, and other special populations of students. A wealth of charts, graphs, and lesson plans give clear examples of academic language/literacy strategies in action. The appendices - a key component of the practical applications developed in the text -include a glossary, exemplary lessons that address key content areas, and a Grammar Handbook
