What do we need to know about literacy practices in the 21st century? How do teachers weave together their grounded, time-honored practices for teaching students to read and write with new research, new text types, and new students? This e-book addresses these questions with research-based evidence presented in a user-friendly format appropriate for pre- and inservice teachers at all grade levels. Well-known literacy scholars share practical ways to apply this knowledge in classrooms to engage and challenge today’s students. Key topics covered include text complexity, vocabulary instruction, reading interventions, digital tools, critical literacy, and self-regulation. Each chapter offers teaching examples—scenarios, transcripts, photo essays, links to videos, screen shots of online strategies—that illustrate how excellent teachers are putting the evidence into practice in today’s classrooms.
