Supported Literacyfor Adolescents
Supported Literacy for Adolescents, written by nationally recognized experts, introduces an innovative and field-tested instructional framework for preparing secondary students to succeed academically in a fast-changing and globally networked world. Filled with examples from science, history, literature, and special education classrooms, the book shows how teachers can enable all students, including underperformers, to develop critical thinking and other essential competencies along with the "multiliteracy" tools needed to engage in twenty-first century content learning. It explains how to design and conduct rigorous, standards-based lessons that emphasize: 1) reading for deep understanding, 2) writing to think, 3) accountable talk, and 4) digital/media fluency. Lessons are structured as 'meaning making' cycles in which students:
Engage in challenging topics and questions
Respond individually by consultingrelevant texts
Elaborate their understanding throughpeer discussion
Revisit their findings through critical reflection
Represent their understandings in writing
Supported Literacy for Adolescents features numerous practical tools and includes extensive guidance on working with students who have reading difficulties. It also maps out professional development and leadership strategies for engaging the whole school in literacy-building efforts.
Praise forSupported Literacy for Adolescents
"This book delivers the goods! It provides a powerful instructional framework for teaching and content learning that will make a difference in the literate lives of adolescents in middle and high school classrooms." --Richard T. Vacca, professor emeritus, Kent State University and past president, International Reading Association
"This timely and much-needed book will surely lead to a paradigm shift in the way middle and high school educators approach literacy integration. The multiliteracy skills used in the Framework take teaching and learning beyond the traditional silos of language arts and the content disciplines and move inquiry learning into twenty-first century ways of knowing and communicating." --Page Keeley, senior science program director, Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance and president (2008-2009), National ScienceTeachers Association
