In the early 1970s, she encountered the ideas and concepts in content area reading and tried them in her classroom. Her success in using those strategies led her to return to graduate school after 20 years in the classroom to complete her P. at the University of Georgia in 1994. Victoria taught graduate and undergraduate disciplinary literacy courses at Clemson University for 20 years.

I did not feel that this book was designed in a reader friendly format. Chapters were poorly delineated and organization did not always make sense to me. It was/is a VERY expensive book when buying a new edition. The book is boring and most of the resources found in this book can be found in more user friendly format on the internet.

I'm taking an undergrad class and this is the required text. I'm a bright student bit I'm finding this incredibly difficult to understand. Most paragraphs are filled with references, pages and dates that are distracting and unnessasary. The vocabulary used is overly complicated. The accompanying Mylab is also a disaster. It took my PhD husband to interpret part of it and we both got the wrong answer on a quiz.
I'm going to find another text to supplement this one. I do not recommend it at all.

I am sad to say that this required textbook was absolutely awful. One would expect a textbook on teaching reading would follow it's own advice regarding format, word choices, etc. There are minimal photos or diagrams to visually reinforce the content. I found myself stopping frequently to look up unnecessarily challenging words...and I don't consider myself unintelligent. This text is ridiculous! Unfortunately it is the state BOE mandated text for this required course.

This is an assigned text for a state required course included in Master's education programs. I don't think anyone willingly reads or purchases this book, so this review is probably meaningless. Avoid this text if at all possible.

I had to purchase this book for a master's class.I liked the class but this book was tedious and dry. I think there are better books out there. "Teaching Writing That Matters" has similar content but is much more accessible.

There are many other texts out there that cover the same content and research which cost a fraction of the price. I would not recommend purchasing this text I was forced because it was required for my class. However, the information contained in this overpriced text is useful and well organized.

I am 45 years old. I wear glasses for far sightedness. The text in this book is small and appears to have been printed in gray scale. ARGH!!
