Providing unique content on assessment, differentiated instruction, technology, and reflective practice, Developing Content Area Literacy 2e is designed to help busy middle school and secondary teachers meet the challenge of addressing the literacy learning needs of all students. Each of the 40 evidence-based strategies is organized around 8 essential areas of literacy instruction: academic vocabulary, reading fluency, narrative text, informational text, media and digital literacies, informational writing, critical thinking, and independent learning. Key Features Specific approaches to differentiating instruction for striving or struggling readers and writers as well as English language learners are included. Easy-to-follow, step-by-step procedures for each strategy are organized around "before," "during," and "after" reading and writing instruction. New and innovative ways to implement technology in the classroom are included along with coverage of media and digital literacies.

Esther Berkowitz is an Associate Professor in the Child Study Department and Director of the Master of Arts in Literacy and Cognition, Brooklyn Campus of St. Joseph's College. � Berkowitz taught elementary through middle school for over 30 years in before moving to the college level at St. Joseph's College. � Berkowitz earned her bachelors and masters' degrees in education from Brooklyn College. � Later, she returned to graduate school for her masters in reading with an emphasis in learning disabilities from Adelphi University. � Berkowitz earned her doctorate in Language, Literacy, and Learning from Fordham University. � Her dissertation on the metacognitive strategies of middle school gifted students was given the Alumni Achievement Award for Outstanding Dissertation from Fordham's School of Education. � She currently teaches literacy methods courses and supervises action research projects of pre-service teachers. On the graduate level, Berkowitz teaches courses in diagnosis and recommendations for reading problems, literacy methods for struggling readings, and supervises the graduate in-service teachers in the literacy practicum. � Berkowitz's interest in technology began with the TRS-80 computer when there were no programs and the computer had to be programmed by the user. � Later, as an intermediate grade language arts teacher, she was one of the few teachers in her school to be presented with four classroom computers with the stipulation that computer use be integrated into the language arts. � At that time, PowerPoint was a new program, and teaching the students to use the program was a fresh approach to creating presentations, some of which were entered into city-wide history contests in collaboration with the social studies teacher. � As a college teacher, she revised her literacy courses to integrate technology to include use of the interactive whiteboard, interactive response devices, lecture capture, and many of the educational sites available on the Internet. � Berkowitz has presented at conferences on topics such as incorporating podcasting, response devices, and the iPad in the classroom as well as creation of interactive projects such as glogs and mindomo mindmaps. �� Aside from presentations related to technology and literacy, she has presented on integrating children's and adolescent literature into the content areas.
