Description : Academic study of children's literature has explored various aspects of diversity; however, little research has examined Canadian books that portray characters with disabilities. This relevant and timely text addresses the significant dearth of research by exploring the treatment of disability in Canadian literature for young people. Engaging and highly accessible, this text will assist teachers, teacher educators, and teacher candidates in finding and using books about characters where disability is a part of their characterization, supporting the development of curricula that reflect critical literacy and social justice issues. Stories for Every Classroom explores the historical patterns and trends, theoretical frameworks, and critical literacy methods used to understand and teach children's literature and its portrayal of characters with disabilities. It provides educators with curriculum ideas and enriches the body of resources shared with children in K-12 settings for the purposes of developing imagination, empathy, and understanding of self and others. Featuring author portraits, comprehensive annotated bibliographies of contemporary Canadian children's books that depict characters with disabilities, and read-on bibliographies that provide connections with other books in the field, this unique text will be an invaluable resource for educators.

Description : Now in its fourth edition, this popular textbook introduces prospective and practicing English teachers to current methods of teaching literature in middle and high school classrooms. This new edition broadens its focus to cover important topics such as critical race theory; perspectives on teaching fiction, nonfiction, and drama; the integration of digital literacy; and teacher research for ongoing learning and professional development. It underscores the value of providing students with a range of different critical approaches and tools for interpreting texts. It also addresses the need to organize literature instruction around topics and issues of interest to today’s adolescents. By using authentic dilemmas and contemporary issues, the authors encourage preservice English teachers and their instructors to raise and explore inquiry-based questions that center on the teaching of a variety of literary texts, both classic and contemporary, traditional and digital. New to the Fourth Edition: Expanded attention to digital tools, multimodal learning, and teaching online New examples of teaching contemporary texts Expanded discussion and illustration of formative assessment Revised response activities for incorporating young adult literature into the literature curriculum Real-world examples of student work to illustrate how students respond to the suggested strategies Extended focus on infusing multicultural and diverse literature in the classroom Each chapter is organized around specific questions that preservice teachers consistently raise as they prepare to become English language arts teachers. The authors model critical inquiry throughout the text by offering authentic case narratives that raise important considerations of both theory and practice. A companion website, a favorite of English education instructors, http://teachingliterature.pbworks.com, provides resources and enrichment activities, inviting teachers to consider important issues in the context of their current or future classrooms.

Description : Situated at the intersection of two of the most important areas in educational research today — literacy and technology — this handbook draws on the potential of each while carving out important new territory. It provides leadership for this newly emerging field, directing scholars to the major issues, theoretical perspectives, and interdisciplinary research pertaining to new literacies. Reviews of research are organized into six sections: Methodologies Knowledge and Inquiry Communication Popular Culture, Community, and Citizenship: Everyday Literacies Instructional Practices and Assessment Multiple Perspectives on New Literacies Research FEATURES Brings together a diverse international team of editors and chapter authors Provides an extensive collection of research reviews in a critical area of educational research Makes visible the multiple perspectives and theoretical frames that currently drive work in new literacies Establishes important space for the emerging field of new literacies research Includes a unique Commentary section: The final section of the Handbook reprints five central research studies. Each is reviewed by two prominent researchers from their individual, and different, theoretical position. This provides the field with a sense of how diverse lenses can be brought to bear on research as well as the benefits that accrue from doing so. It also provides models of critical review for new scholars and demonstrates how one might bring multiple perspectives to the study of an area as complex as new literacies research. The Handbook of Research on New Literacies is intended for the literacy research community, broadly conceived, including scholars and students from the traditional reading and writing research communities in education and educational psychology as well as those from information science, cognitive science, psychology, sociolinguistics, computer mediated communication, and other related areas that find literacy to be an important area of investigation.

Description : The Encyclopedia of Adolescence breaks new ground as an important central resource for the study of adolescence. Comprehensive in breath and textbook in depth, the Encyclopedia of Adolescence – with entries presented in easy-to-access A to Z format – serves as a reference repository of knowledge in the field as well as a frequently updated conduit of new knowledge long before such information trickles down from research to standard textbooks. By making full use of Springer’s print and online flexibility, the Encyclopedia is at the forefront of efforts to advance the field by pushing and creating new boundaries and areas of study that further our understanding of adolescents and their place in society. Substantively, the Encyclopedia draws from four major areas of research relating to adolescence. The first broad area includes research relating to "Self, Identity and Development in Adolescence". This area covers research relating to identity, from early adolescence through emerging adulthood; basic aspects of development (e.g., biological, cognitive, social); and foundational developmental theories. In addition, this area focuses on various types of identity: gender, sexual, civic, moral, political, racial, spiritual, religious, and so forth. The second broad area centers on "Adolescents’ Social and Personal Relationships". This area of research examines the nature and influence of a variety of important relationships, including family, peer, friends, sexual and romantic as well as significant nonparental adults. The third area examines "Adolescents in Social Institutions". This area of research centers on the influence and nature of important institutions that serve as the socializing contexts for adolescents. These major institutions include schools, religious groups, justice systems, medical fields, cultural contexts, media, legal systems, economic structures, and youth organizations. "Adolescent Mental Health" constitutes the last major area of research. This broad area of research focuses on the wide variety of human thoughts, actions, and behaviors relating to mental health, from psychopathology to thriving. Major topic examples include deviance, violence, crime, pathology (DSM), normalcy, risk, victimization, disabilities, flow, and positive youth development.

Description : The 3rd Edition of Literacy & Learning in the Content Areas helps readers build the knowledge, motivation, tools, and confidence they need as they integrate literacy into their middle and high school content area classrooms. Its unique approach to teaching content area literacy actively engages preservice and practicing teachers in reading and writing and the very activities that they will use to teach literacy to their own studentsin middle and high school classrooms . Rather than passively learning about strategies for incorporating content area literacy activities, readers get hands-on experience in such techniques as mapping/webbing, anticipation guides, booktalks, class websites, and journal writing and reflection. Readers also learn how to integrate children's and young adult literature, primary sources, biographies, essays, poetry, and online content, communities, and websites into their classrooms. Each chapter offers concrete teaching examples and practical suggestions to help make literacy relevant to students' content area learning. Author Sharon Kane demonstrates how relevant reading, writing, speaking, listening, and visual learning activities can improve learning in content area subjects and at the same time help readers meet national content knowledge standards and benchmarks.

Description : "The Fourth Edition Builds on Past Strengths and Adds New Ones... " Student Centered. Culturally Diverse Students. Evidence-Based Standards. Written by renowned authors Donna Alvermann and Steven Phelps, the Fourth Edition includes more emphasis and information on addressing the literacy needs of English language learners and culturally diverse students, a new focus on evidence-based practices and standards, and key information on newer frameworks for reading and writing instruction, such as the sociocultural New Literacies Framework, that equips students to teach content area literacy from a student-centered approach. What Continues to Make This Book a Best Seller... Increased discussion of English language learners. New evidence-based research icons highlighting current research New standards icons from various subject areas help pre-service teachers make the connection on how content area literacy instruction helps them meet the standards in their disciplines. New writing icons throughout the chapters point to writing examples. Thoroughly revised Chapter 7, " Reading to Learn." New information for all of the content areas in every chapter is represented in the examples, lessons, vignettes, and scenarios, making it easier for students enrolled from different discipline areas to locate content-specific/relevant examples. Ringing Endorsements for "Content Area Reading and Literacy, Fourth Edition" " Chapter 14-- " Teaching for Diversity." "This is an excellent chapter that certification students and other graduate students can use to understand more about thetypes of diversity categories that are present in instructional settings. This textbook is excellent for students." " Lavernia F. Hutchison, University of Houston-- Central Campus "" There are many strengths in this text. I particularly like the way it is laid out. I believe that helping the students to see the importance of content literacy from the very beginning is extremely important. Immediately following this topic the students then move directly into diversity, which includes the understanding the meaning of language and culture. Both of these topics form the basis for the rest of the course. Overall, I believe that this book is an excellent text for teaching in the Content Area." " Randy M. Wood, Baylor University "" The strengths of this text include the authors in depth knowledge of the field of content area reading. Their chapter on assessing textbooks is invaluable for secondary teachers who don't understand the difficulty of some textbooks and the problems these texts can cause students. The chapter on multiculturalism and the ESL learner is a strength. The chapter on vocabulary is outstanding." " Patricia J.

Description : This thought-provoking text supports the efforts of teachers and students working to achieve new and higher standards of reading proficiency in grades 4 to 8. Unlike any other text, "Teaching Reading in the Middle Grades" provides a balanced, readable analysis of recent documents developed by professional organizations, researchers, and government agencies including the National Council of Teachers of English, the International Reading Association, and the National Reading Panel, The text articulates standards for proficient reading performance and for effective instruction and reflects on how these standards provide a useful synthesis of current research and practice about teaching methods. With its careful balance of the different dimensions presented in current research outlining that the teacher, not only the method, is a crucial factor in student achievement, this text helps students grasp the scope and complexity of student achievement in literacy. "Teaching Reading in the Middle Grades" is organized in two partsunderstanding literacy development (Part I) and supporting literacy development (Part II)and incorporates various classroom routines throughout the book. Ideal as a main text or a reference guide for teachers, this flexible textbook is intended for reading and language arts teachers in middle school settings who are trying to help their students become better readers and writers. It also teaches both pre-service and practicing teachers how to meet the specific needs of all the teachers who have been given responsibility for developing the proficiency of readers in the middle grades. Praise for "Teaching Reading in the Middle Grades" " The major strength of this manuscript is the readable nature of the material. It is cutting-edge, essentially accurate, and easy to read at the same time. This text is readable and very practical. Most concepts that are introduced are thoroughly developed and the writer also provides many suitable examples of how to apply the material. It's refreshing to read a text that explicitly mentions English Language Learners (ELL) as opposed to mentioning the obvious fact that reading texts should reflect a diversity of cultural experiences or some other such generic admonition. " Paul L. Markham, University of Kansas " The discussion of scaffolding is among the best I have read. It's clear and comprehensible. Few authors directly address the confusion between teaching strategies and reader strategies. I love the transition between read-alouds and oral reading by studentsI look forward to quoting the authors in the future when I do presentations on oral reading strategies. Hats off to the authors for modeling the pattern guide with a primary source! This is the first textbook in which I have seen the pattern guide used with this type of reading/listening material.
