Podcast: Janet Allen on academic literacy

July 24th, 2008

“The single biggest reason that students don’t read textbooks is because they don’t understand the vocabulary words. That becomes not only an impediment to their reading but it becomes the single biggest problem with their writing, because if you don’t have insider vocabulary it’s almost impossible to write about content.”

In this podcast, Janet Allen talks about her new book Inside Words and how it complements her previous books, Words, Words, Words and Tools for Teaching Content Literacy.
