Overview

Like previous editions, the third edition of Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents’ Lives invites middle- and high-school educators to move toward a broad, generative view of adolescent literacies. Recognizing that digital media, social networking phenomena are now central in adolescents’ lives, what is different is the focus in this edition on bridging students’ everyday literacies and subject matter learning. Four chapters from earlier editions serve as touchstone texts, honoring youth’s diverse experiences and illustrating how young people’s literacies are enacted, situated, and mediated in various locales; nine new chapters consider how these themes are lived in today’s schools and in the rapidly changing world outside of school

This edition features heightened attention multimodal meaning construction, more discussion of practical implications of the ideas presented, and co-authored teacher commentaries at the end of each section. A Companion Website, new for this edition, facilitates practical application of the text’s key ideas, with discussion questions, and links to instructional activities, blogs, additional readings and viewings, and interactive web pages, and videos.
