Dimensions of Literacy
A Conceptual Base for Teaching Reading and Writing in School Settings, Second Edition
This popular text examines literacy from a multidimensional and interdisciplinary perspective.

The goal is to provide a conceptual foundation upon which literacy curriculum and instruction in school settings can be grounded.
