Literacy: a redefinition
L. Erlbaum Associates, Mar 1, 1994 - Education - 297 pages
The concepts of the past, centered more narrowly on traditional ways of learning to read and write, no longer suffice in a society that requires higher level skills from an increasingly diverse student population. Providing a new direction in literacy education, the chapters in this volume offer a revitalized perspective of literacy. They focus on the forms that literacy will take in the future, the influence of changing technologies and multimedia on curriculum and instructional practices, and on effective learning environments. These chapters incorporate the insights of researchers in several disciplines to examine ways of helping students develop the broad-based literacy skills they will need in order to participate fully in American society. Teachers, teacher educators, and others concerned with the future of nurturing and schooling will find challenging ideas for redefining instruction in literacy in this book.
