Title: Teaching the Dimensions of Literacy
Written By: Stephen B. Kucer
Cecilia Silva
Description:

"Teaching the Dimensions of Literacy" provides the conceptual knowledge to
support teachers' instructional decisions in the reading/literacy classroom
and features a multitude of instructional strategy lessons for classroom
use with both monolingual and bilingual students. Its premise is that
literacy comprises four dimensions--linguistic, cognitive, sociocultural,
and developmental. In the debate over literacy instruction, and in many
reading/literacy methods texts, one dimension tends to be privileged and
the others ignored. In this text, the teaching and learning of all four
dimensions of literacy are acknowledged and addressed. The four dimensions
provide a coherent conceptual framework within which instructional strategy
lessons are identified, synthesized, organized, and
presented--demonstrating how the complex nature of literacy can be
addressed within a classroom setting.
