This book presents both a theoretical framework and classroom-tested ideas for literacy instruction in middle schools. Equally suitable for middle school courses as well as for in-service training, this concise yet comprehensive text is divided into two parts&#151Part I introduces students to 8 principles/concerns that are at the forefront of middle school students' minds and Part II includes applications for Literacy Instruction and Learning in the Middle Grades Reading/LA classes, providing teaching ideas, instructional strategies, and suggestions for assessment, evaluation and grading. This text gives one new insight for the potential for literacy instruction in today's middle schools and the need to understand the many questions and concerns that pre-service and practicing teachers have as they teach in those schools. This text is loaded with theoretically-sound ideas for building student-sensitive literacy curricula.
