Literacy Instruction in the Content Areas: Getting to the Core of Middle and High School

From press release:

Reading and writing instruction must be included in all academic areas if literacy is to improve to levels that will ensure the nation’s middle and high school students are prepared for success in college, work, and citizenship, according to a new report from the Alliance for Excellent Education.

Literacy Instruction in the Content Areas: Getting to the Core of Middle and High School Improvement, a report to Carnegie Corporation of New York, argues that the acceptable standard for all students must exceed simply reading at grade level. Only advanced reading skills will truly prepare students to meet the challenges of education beyond high school, the needs of the workplace, and the demands of the 21st century. The report contends that these increased expectations are best met by providing added instruction that corresponds with the specific reading and writing requirements of each academic course in middle and high school.
