Zwiers tackles the tough distinction between content vocabulary and academic vocabulary. He provides a lot of background information on academic language and the students who struggle in the classroom because of the use of academic vocabulary. Each chapter ends with a handful of suggested activities to take into the classroom. The chapters on academic language in reading, writing, small group work, class discussions, and assessments are especially helpful.
