Summary "Literacy Teaching and Learning: Current Issues and Trends is a text for those who seek to extend, refine, update, or advance their knowledge of theory, research, and practice in literacy education. Designed to bridge the gap between research volumes that are most appropriate for advanced doctoral students and introductory methods texts that offer only cursory examination of the field, this book presents current, balanced, and authoritative perspectives on myriad major topics that are of both theoretical and practical significance to literacy educators.
Organized into 10 thematic sections, the 30 carefully selected articles and accompanying pedagogical features enable students to gain an in-depth understanding of and practical ideas about current trends and issues in literacy teaching and learning. This text is a must-read for preservice teachers, in-service teachers, graduate students of literacy and related fields, and alternative teaching candidates seeking reading endorsement or certification."--Jacket.
