Description : This book explains the concept of multiliteracies and provides the literacy knowledge, resources, attitudes, and strategies that elementary and middle school students need to succeed in a changing world. The authors present a range of new and established ideas about literacy, emphasising successful practices. Chapters cover how teachers can rely less on print texts; respond to new trends in children's literature; and balance guided reading, outcomes-based curricula, and school-wide approaches to planning. New concepts are accompanied by reflection strategies to help understandings of literacy, multiliteracies, and texts. All chapters include Theory Into Practice: Classroom Application sections throughout to demonstrate how to incorporate multiliteracies every day in the classroom. [Back cover, ed].

Description : Offering the wisdom that only experience and expertise in the field can bring, this book takes a critical look into the present and the future of literacy as envisioned by leading reading researchers. The lead author of each chapter, and in some cases more than one, of the authors, is a distinguished reading researcher elected by their peers into the Reading Hall of Fame. In this book these distinguished literacy leaders extend their role as researchers to speak directly to issues of practice and policy. All chapters address the theme of literacy and the teaching of literacy as being in a constant state of change. The authors are theoretical as they describe literacy, literacy acquisition, and the teaching of literacy; they are practical as they examine the issues that classroom teachers and reading specialists engage with on a daily basis; and they are political as they advocate for informed policy at the local, state and national levels. A key message in this book is that literacy professionals must take an active role to shape change.

Description : Literacy researchers interested in how specific sites of learning situate students and the ways they make sense of their worlds are asking new questions and thinking in new ways about how time and space operate as contextual dimensions in the learning lives of students, teachers, and families. These investigations inform questions related to history, identity, methodology, in-school and out-of school spaces, and local/global literacies. An engaging blend of methodological, theoretical, and empirical work featuring well-known researchers on the topic, this book provides a conceptual framework for extending existing conceptions of context and provides unique and ground-breaking examples of empirical research.

Description : By embracing a rapidly changing digital world, the so-called millennial adolescent is proving quite adept at breaking down age-old distinctions among disciplines, between high- and low-brow media culture, and within print and digitized text types. "Adolescents and Literacies in a Digital World" explores the significance of digital technologies and media in youth's negotiated approaches to making meaning within a broad array of self-defined literacy practices. Organized around a series of case studies, this book blends theories of an attention economy, generational differences, communication technologies, and neoliberal enactive texts with actual accounts of adolescents' use of instant messaging, shape-shifting portfolios, critical inquiry, and media production.

Description : Now in its fifth edition, this popular textbook is still the most comprehensive resource available on the oversight of literacy programs (pre-K–12). Focusing on what literacy leaders need to know and do to meet today’s mandates, experts in the field offer new insights that reflect the nation’s changing policies related to the new Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. It also addresses forthcoming assessments aligned to the common core standards, and new mandates for evaluating teachers and principals. Literacy luminaries provide specific guidelines for all levels of instruction, including selecting and using materials and new technologies, promoting writing, assessing students, evaluating teachers, providing professional development, working with linguistically diverse and struggling learners, working with parents and the community, and evaluating school-wide literacy programs. Book Features: Chapters written by experts who have years of experience working in schools. Real-life examples demonstrate how theories have been applied. Reflective questions and project assignments in each chapter allow readers to relate ideas to their own situations. Connections across chapters and directions for future considerations help summarize and synthesize information. Contributors: Moises Aguirre, Kathryn H. Au, Rita M. Bean, M.

If I were to do a column ‘What’s Hot in Literacy/Reading Texts,’ this volume would undoubtedly be at the top of the list.” —From the Foreword by Jack Cassidy, past president, International Reading Association “This fifth edition is a timely and most welcome addition to my professional library.

This is a ‘must-have’ book for anyone involved in overseeing literacy programs at school, district, and state levels.” —Linda Gambrell, Distinguished Professor of Education, Clemson University and co-editor of Reading Research Quarterly Shelley B.
