Editorial Reviews

Review

"Our university has been using Literacy for the 21st Century since 2001. Students purchase this text during their sophomore year. When they return to our university after graduation to earn a master’s degree and reading specialist certification, most still have their copies of Literacy for the 21st Century and they report that they use it often in their classroom teaching." - Helen Hoffner, Ed.D., Holy Family University

"...an excellent resource to use for reviewing language arts content as well as introducing pedagogy. It is easily accessible to students and contains current, relevant information that is well supported by theory and research in the field." - Angela Madden, Eastern Kentucky University

I was surprised at how well aligned this was with the Ready for Revised RICA this was. Highly recommended if you want to beef up your Reading Instruction skills and abilities. Particularly useful are the reading activities listed in the back.

This text was required for a collegiate course. However, I will be keeping it as a future resource for my teaching career. It outlines approaches nicely and describes teaching strategies that can be used to target the five components of a good reading curriculum.

I chose this rating because the book arrived in great condition. What I like about the book is that it has many inside classroom stories that relate the material in the book to actual teaching techniques. It is colorful and not very difficult to read given enough time.

This book was a required text. The content I found somewhat beneficial however the book isn't durable. The spine of the book didn't even last one semester!

Format: Paperback
Written in a wordy style that becomes very tedious to read. This book could have been half as long and half the price. Teachers are professionals and can be addressed as such. The kid handwriting fonts and random pictures of pigeons are silly and annoying.
