Look Inside the Book

Adolescent Literacy in the Era of the Common Core provides school leaders, teachers, and others with strategies and best practices for advancing adolescent literacy in the classroom.


This must-read volume is packed with new and useful ideas for educators working to promote adolescent literacy. Six essential and critical domains are discussed, providing instructional examples and frameworks for classroom use. This is the right book at the right time, describing instruction aligned with the Common Core State Standards. — Rita M. Bean, professor emerita, University of Pittsburgh

A must-read for middle and high school content teachers, instructional/literacy coaches, and administrators. This book quickly brings newcomers up-to-date and both affirms and builds upon what others already know. Teachers and administrators alike will leave the book fully prepared for implementation of the Common Core State Standards and new technologies. This is a resource that won’t just sit on a shelf! — Nancy L. Shanklin, literacy, language, and culturally responsive teaching program, School of Education and Human Development, University of Colorado Denver

The editors present research and practice that address six essential domains of adolescent literacy instruction. Readers will find instructional strategies that they can ‘do now,’ as well as guiding principles for ongoing professional development. — Pamela A. Mason, director, Language and Literacy Program and Jeanne Chall Reading Lab, Harvard Graduate School of Education

This book is recommended for educators who are already familiar with the common core but who are looking to hone their practices and situate them within educational theory. — M.B. Hopkins, CHOICE
