Additional Book Details

Because literacy is not just the English teacher’s job

Think literacy is just for English teachers? Not anymore. Nor should it be when you consider  that each discipline has its own unique values and means of expression. These days, it’s up to all teachers to communicate what it means to be literate in their disciplines. Here, finally, is a book ambitious enough to tackle the topic across all major subject areas. 

Smagorinsky and his colleagues provide an insider’s lens on both the states of their fields and their specific literacy requirements, including: 

Reviews of the latest issues and research 
Scenario-based activities for reflection and discussion 
Considerations of the textual forms and conventions required in all major disciplines
