Editor's Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.
This popular text, now in its fourth edition, “unpacks” the various dimensions of literacy—linguistic and other sign systems; cognitive; sociocultural; and developmental—and at the same time accounts for the interrelationships among them. Distinguished by its examination of literacy from a multidimensional and interdisciplinary perspective, it provides a strong conceptual foundation upon which literacy curriculum and instruction in school settings can be grounded.
Changes in the Fourth Edition include: Addresses academic language, new literacies/multiliteracies, and their relationship to literacy learning; More fully develops the developmental dimension of literacy in separate chapters on adult mediation and learner construction; Expands the discussion of multimodal literacies; Extends and integrates the discussion of bilingualism and biliteracy throughout the text; Integrates instructional implications more fully throughout
