1) Help students in grades 6-12 become "academic insiders"
Developing Readers in the Academic Disciplines, by Doug Buehl Being literate in an academic discipline means more than simply being able to read and comprehend text; it means you can think, speak, and write as a scientist, historian, mathematician, or artist.

In his thoroughly revised second edition of Developing Readers in the Academic Disciplines, Doug Buehl strips away the one-size-fits-all approach to content-area literacy and presents a much-needed instructional model for disciplinary literacy—showing you how to mentor middle and high school learners to become "academic insiders" who are college and career ready.

Developing Readers in the Academic Disciplines introduces teachers from all disciplines to new kinds of thinking and, ultimately, teaching that helps students achieve new levels of understanding.
