Has some useful strategies in it, but the rest of the text is incredibly dry and makes it feel like a slog to get through. Worth a look just to browse some of the methods relating to your content area, but as a whole... not so much. Also, avoid the ebook like the plague and get the physical text.
One of the best education textbooks out there. I bought this edition because it was 90% cheaper than the new edition but it still has the same great information minus two new chapters. It is one text I am using in grad school that I know I will take with me to my classroom.

This text was quite accessible, and I liked all the examples it had to offer. It was my favorite of 3 for a class I took about Content Area Literacy.

Good resource for content area teachers, or special education teachers working with middle school students who struggle with content area reading.
Required text for one of my courses.... Easy to read.....
Useful, but very, very dry.
