This book addresses the need to help all students, including English learners, improve their ability to read with understanding so that they can succeed not just in their language and literacy classes, but also in their subject area classrooms. The book brings together a group of experts representing the fields of first and second language reading, whose chapters contribute in different yet complementary ways to the goal of this book: Improve students’ reading for understanding across languages with metacognitive awareness and use of reading strategies instruction.
