What is included with this book?
Like previous editions, the third edition of Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents'¬" Livesinvites middle- and high-school educators to move toward a broad, generative view of adolescent literacies. Recognizing that digital media, social networking phenomena are now central in adolescents'¬" lives, what is different is the focus in this edition on bridging students'¬" everyday literacies and subject matter learning. Four chapters from earlier editions serve as touchstone texts, honoring youth'¬"s diverse experiences and illustrating how young people'¬"s literacies are enacted, situated, and mediated in various locales; nine new chapters consider how these themes are lived in today'¬"s schools and in the rapidly changing world outside of school This edition features heightened attention multimodal meaning construction, more discussion of practical implications of the ideas presented, and co-authored teacher commentaries at the end of each section. A Companion Website, new for this edition, facilitates practical application of the text'¬"s key ideas, with discussion questions, and links to instructional activities, blogs, additional readings and viewings, and interactive web pages, and videos.
