Overview

Help your struggling middle school and high school students overcome the obstacles to being better readers and thinkers. Drawn primarily from IRA's Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, this collection of 40 articles acknowledges beliefs and situations that interfere with teens' learning, and presents ways to inspire them to be resilient and take charge of their learning. You'll discover important strategies for working with struggling adolescent readers: acknowledging cultural ties; supporting classroom reading, writing, and inquiry; varying texts to meet students' needs; and connecting in-school and out-of-school reading. Watch your students thrive as you engage them through print, foster a spirit of inquiry in a supportive atmosphere, and create environments where students can explore many perspectives and interpretations of texts.
