Handbook of Adolescent Literacy Research
The first comprehensive research handbook of its kind, this volume showcases innovative approaches to understanding adolescent literacy learning in a variety of settings.
The book emphasizes social and cultural factors in adolescents’ approach to communication and response to instruction, and sections address literacy both in and out of schools, including literacy expectations in the contemporary workplace. Detailed attention is given to issues of diversity and individual differences among learners.
Distinguished contributors examine how well adolescents are served by current instructional practices and highlight ways to translate research findings more effectively into sound teaching and policymaking. WestEd’s Ruth Schoenbach and Cynthia Greenleaf wrote a key chapter, “Fostering Adolescents’ Engaged Academic Literacy.”
