It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Dimensions of Literacy
Subtitle: A Conceptual Base for Teaching Reading and Writing in School Settings, Second Edition
Written By: Stephen B. Kucer

This popular text examines literacy from a multidimensional and
interdisciplinary perspective. It "unpackages" the various dimensions of
literacy--linguistic, cognitive, sociocultural, and developmental--and at
the same time accounts for the interrelationships among them. The goal is
to provide a conceptual foundation upon which literacy curriculum and
instruction in school settings can be grounded.
