Changing Literacies for Changing Times
An Historical Perspective on the Future of Reading Research, Public Policy, and Classroom Practices
James V. Hoffman and Yetta M. Goodman, editors
Take a critical look into the present and future of literacy as envisioned by leading reading researchers. The lead author of each chapter is a distinguished reading researcher, recognized for making significant contributions to the field by their election into the Reading Hall of Fame. Offering the wisdom that only experience and expertise can bring, these literacy leaders speak directly to issues of classroom practice and literacy policy, to help educators transform literacy teaching and learning while dealing with current education realities.
All chapters focus on the changing nature of literacy and are
- Theoretical as they describe literacy, literacy acquisition, and literacy teaching
- Practical as they examine the issues that classroom teachers and reading specialists engage with daily
- Political as they advocate for informed policy at the local, state, and national levels
