Literacy for the 21st Century: A Balanced Approach is a thoroughly applied text written to ensure that readers understand the current theories behind and the critical components of instruction for teaching reading and writing as complementary in the development of literacy. Readers are treated to a philosophical approach that not only balances the why, what, and how of teaching literacy but also offers practical pedagogy—teaching strategies and instructional procedures—that foster thoughtful teacher preparation and ensures alignment to the literacy goals teachers are responsible to teach. New text features model practices that support diverse populations, instruction driven by sound classroom assessment, and new literacy strategies that will help teachers transform literacy learning with digital devices. Integrating the best of what we know about teaching reading and writing, the Sixth Edition of this popular introductory text provides the balance teachers need to be successful in the classroom. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video.

"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.,HolyFamily 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 used this textbook for a graduate course in Literacy. It did a great job of combining facts and anecdotal stories. The books one shortcoming was that I found it gave no specific help developing lesson plans for literacy.
