Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Each volume is structured similarly and addresses common topics. Each includes classic, foundational topics as well more cutting-edge issues and is organized into three sections addressing recent trends and issues for that age range, issues in assessment and instruction, and issues that influence literacy practice and development outside the classroom. Additionally, each volume includes issues of federal legislation, funding, and polices affecting literacy assessment instruction and practice; age-specific literacy development and assessment; digital technology and literacy; and the influence of youth and popular culture in literacy instruction. As a whole, the set is intended to provide an accessible introduction to the field of literacy to an audience with little or no prior knowledge of the field."

"This set is a highly useful resource for educators, preservice teachers, teacher educators, librarians, policy makers, researchers, and individuals interested in providing developmentally effective literacy opportunities for learners of all ages."

Oklahoma Librarian

"In this four-volume set, the influence of popular culture, media, and technology on literacy in our society is thoroughly discussed. Each volume covers a specific portion of our lives—early literacy, childhood literacy, adolescent literacy, and adult literacy—in great detail including current trends, and assessment and instruction. For those who are studying the field or who have a special interest in this area, this is a comprehensive work."
