From the Back Cover

Meet the challenges of teaching literacy in today’s classroom

Reading is more than decoding symbols on a page. It is a complex, multi-layered process that begins early in a child’s life and encompasses the many social, cultural, and historical contexts that surround the child. Literate Lives: Teaching Reading and Writing in Elementary Classrooms not only gives you the historical and theoretical foundations that you need to be a teacher of reading, writing, and literacy in today’s classroom; it helps you understand the broader, more complete picture of the reading process and what it means to be a teacher of readers.

In this book, you’ll cover the major theories and application strategies of the reading process, and learn how to organize for literary instruction in your classroom. As you learn to recognize and draw upon the multiple literacies that children bring to the classroom, you will:

  • Become a skilled problem-solver as you work through real-world examples and study the classroom experiences of others.
  • Discover how to dig deeper into literacy instruction and decide on what actions to take.
  • Explore ways to drive and teach literacy with such tools as children’s toys and familiar characters.

At once engaging and challenging, Literate Lives gives you both the tools and the confidence you need to begin your successful career as a teacher of literacy.

I am becoming a reading specialist and found this book an amazing resource. For teachers that want to take their craft of teaching literacy seriously, know the theoretical perspectives, have real life applications of these perspectives, and in an easy to read way...this is a great book. All too often, educational literature is so boring, but I felt this book had a great balance of being informative while at the same time practical. I love it and will keep to refer back to myself and share with teachers I work with for a very long time!

I only ordered this book for a course I am taking, but don't find it very useful. It's wordy and not easy to read. There aren't a lot of take-away ideas from the book, so that stinks. However, if you do get this book, I recommend the cheaper unbound version. It just goes in a 3-ring notebook!

The seller titled the text book I ordered as "Like New." Therefore I went a head and paid the $50 dollars for the book. When I received the book in the mail, the binding was completely off. Although the pages were in the book correctly, since the binding and cover were not intact the pages were loose and could at any moment fall out of the book. I am extremely disapointed now that I have to pay even more money to ship back and I have to waste my time and money to begin with all because the seller could not title the book correctly.
