“Insightful and engaging, this text provides educators with current knowledge and critical teaching applications. The third edition's increased attention to multimodalities and diversity and social justice makes a core text in the field even more desirable. The contributors challenge us to rethink and extend our practices to support adolescent literacy learning most effectively. I have used selected chapters in graduate courses, and the text was very well received. My students came away with both the passion and capability to implement new teaching practices and research projects.”

—Jacqueline Lynch, PhD, School of Education and Human Development, Florida International University


“Presented by a dream team of researchers and educators, the third edition of this text offers evidence-based methods that center literacy instruction around adolescents' strengths, interests, and lived experiences. The volume consistently demonstrates the centrality of doing literacy in a way that truly responds to the identities of the learners we serve. Not only is this approach humanizing and equitable, but it also enhances learning. Taken together, the chapters offer a powerful vision in which teachers join with students to cultivate the strategies, skills, and agency needed for reading and writing in today’s world.”

—Leslie David Burns, PhD, Program Chair of Secondary English Education, University of Kentucky


“This text bridges the gap between research and classroom practice in my methods course for preservice teachers. Not only are the chapters research based, but the authors also highlight youth and teacher experiences, providing a rich context for discussions about adapting literacy practices to address the various needs of students and their communities. While the third edition continues to provide exceptional resources for rigorous literacy instruction, there is a greater focus on creating space to honor cultural and linguistic diversity in the classroom. From exploring the digital literacies of Black girls to teaching multilingual text sets to challenging systemic racism across the disciplines, the new chapters are timely and speak directly to the experiences of students and teachers today.”

—Anthony Celaya, PhD, Department of English, Southeast Missouri State University
