Content Area Reading

Content-area reading books help build the background knowledge and academic language students need to enhance curriculum-based learning. In most classrooms, however, students’ exposure to content-area reading comes from textbooks that are often challenging to read and out-of-date. Authentic content-area reading books facilitate comprehension and motivate students to read by capitalizing on their interests and whetting their appetites for more information, while also providing in-depth coverage and accurate, up-to-date information. Students learn to read while reading to learn about engaging subjects.
