"In order to succeed in school and beyond, students in grades 6-12 need to understand and use both academic language and discipline-specific vocabulary.

The expert authors present a wealth of specific teaching strategies, illustrated with classroom vignettes and student work samples. Connections to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are highlighted throughout; an extensive annotated list of print and electronic resources enhances the book's utility.
