Summary

Thought-provoking, this long-awaited book offers a fresh and much-needed point of view of how to "rethink" literacy and technology in todayrs"s diverse classrooms. Authored by some of the most respected researches in the field today, From Grade Expectations to Great Expectationsreflects on the idea that great expectationsare achievable through educational projects that foster academic growth, with classroom diversity and technology as catylysts for deeper learning and that a narrow focus on grade expectationsyields superficial results. Arguing that todayrs"s learning principles need to incorporate the core values of community learning, critical pedagogy, multilingualism, anti-racist education, high academic standards, and technological fluency, this unparallel book serves as an introduction to these learning principles which best serve the life-long learning of students.
