This textbook is intended to be used by preservice and practicing teachers of literacy from PreK-8. The book is organized into four main sections: first, Foundations of Literacy Practice; second, Basic Components of Literacy; third, Reading and Writing To, With, and By Children; and fourth, Anchoring Literacy Instruction. The ordering of the sections will help readers understand why they are teaching, then what they are teaching, and finally how they are teaching. The book will conclude by revisiting the reasons why they are teaching in order to focus on who they are teaching.

Publication Type: Journal Article, Academic Journal

Volume: 41

Abstract: click to view

Many general education instructors assign university students to complete out-of-class readings of course texts and materials. Different approaches to making these assignments and holding students accountable for them might affect the amount of time students actually spend reading. Five teachers of a required religion/philosophy class used a variety of approaches to assign out-of-class reading. Subsequently, 504 of their students were asked about their reading completion, motivation to read, and how out-of-class reading affected their learning and personal study. Results showed that students who were assigned a specific number of minutes for outside reading completed assignments more consistently than those who received other forms of reading assignments. Results also indicated that students who were graded on their outside reading completed it more frequently than those who were not graded. Implications and limitations of these results are discussed.

Abstract: click to view

"Literacy research in Latin America ought to maintain and respond to the immediacy of its context and address problems to be solved" (Seda-Santana, 2000, p. 50). For the last 17 years, Brigham Young University has sponsored a literacy program in rural Mexico that embraces this philosophy. This paper reports the history of this program, specifically highlighting one student's experience. This student, originally from Massachusetts, sought out the program because he wanted a cross-cultural experience. In September 2007, he and three fellow students traveled to villages in central Mexico where they lived with families and tutored adults in literacy using materials provided by a government agency. His tutoring experiences and reflections on them are representative of many who have participated in the program for almost two decades. During this time, program directors have observed many changes in literacy education in Mexico. Three major changes include a decline in motivation for literacy, slow response of government agencies to the literacy needs of individuals, and changes in rural society due to the availability of money coming from relatives working outside the country. Possible directions for the future are also included.
