When students encounter difficulties while reading textbooks, their first instinct is often to blame themselves ? and their lack of reading proficiency. But the problems often have nothing to do with them.

In this revised and expanded edition of her classic "Infotext: Reading and Learning, " Karen Feathers explains why infotexts ? the textbooks, manuals, magazines, Web sites, and so on that we read for information ? often present problems, even for proficient readers. By drawing on both traditional and current research into reading and reading behavior, she then goes on to demonstrate how teachers of content subjects can help students, including English language learners, overcome these problems and learn more effectively. Her practical, classroom-tested suggestions help teachers focus on content and manage curriculum demands, while encouraging students to take control of their own learning by expanding their repertoire of reading strategies.
