So much of what we know about adolescents and their learning has changed in the last decade, and since then both the world of education and the world at large have become very different places. "Adolescent Literacy "convenes a conversation among today's most important educational thinkers and practitioners to address crucial advances in research on adolescent learning, to assess which of our current practices meets the challenges of the twenty-first century, and to discover transformative ideas and methods that turn the promise of education into instructional practice.sIn "Adolescent Literacy" renowned educators Kylene Beers, Bob Probst, and Linda Rief lead twenty-eight of the most important and widely read educators across the country in a conversation about where we are in the teaching of literacy to adolescents and how best to move forward. From researchers to classroom teachers, from long-treasured voices to important new members of the education community, "Adolescent Literacy "includes the thoughts of central figures in the field today.s"Adolescent Literacy" discusses the most provocative issues of our time, including: English language learners struggling readers technology in the classroom multimodal literacy compelling writing instruction teaching in a "flat world" young adult literature.sEach of its chapters builds on the previous to create a unified story of adolescent literacy that will help all middle and secondary teachers and administratorssenvision literacy instruction in exciting new ways. In addition "Adolescent Literacy"'sassessment rubricsfor teachers, administrators, and staff developers make it an ideal resource for schoolwide and districtwide professional development, while its accompanying study guide is perfect for small-group discussions.ssNow is indeed the time to create a powerful vision of how to teach adolescents. The research on their learning has reached a critical mass, modern technology has allowed them to engage in a far wider range of literate behaviors than ever before, and their world has become increasingly connected, increasingly competitive, and increasingly polarized. Read "Adolescent Literacy," consider the thoughts of leading educators, and join a conversation about what it means to teach and learn in this dynamic new environment. And do it soon, because the need to turn education's promise into classroom practice has never been more urgent.
