Literacy Today: New Standards Across the Curriculum

Overview

This text defines literacy broadly as it explores concepts within core subjects and shows how to make standards-based literacy the goal and outcome of school reform. It imagines a future digital medium where educational tehcnology is worthy of the spirit our children bring to it. Classrooms and schools centred on learners and learning can be intellectually exciting places. This book attends to this concern while giving attention to connecting and overlapping themes of good teaching. It sets out to challenge teachers to make literacy and learning more relevant and lasting for their students. By providing a standards-based context for connecting basic subjects, it encourages teachers to reflect on their practices while building a conceptual framework for new directions and new approaches to the curriculum. As the concept of literacy expands to meet the needs of the modern complex world, teachers need all the assistance that they can get. The standards movement does not authoritatively tell teachers what to do. Rather, it helps them make decisions about what to teach, what to spend time on, and what to eliminate from the curriculum. This text aims to provide teachers with a road map and a literacy-intensive destination. It highlights some of the better routes and helps teachers with good activities and professional development along the way.
