LITERACY FOR CHILDREN IN AN INFORMATION AGE, 2ND EDITION, identifies the "new literacies" and provides practical tips for integrating technology in literacy instruction. The book emphasizes a balanced approach to reading education that incorporates both the whole language and skills-based/phonics approaches. It also features in-depth information on tailoring reading programs to meet the needs of multicultural users. Hundreds of examples of classroom practice include chapter-opening vignettes, work samples, and examples of instructional strategies for various grade levels. To address the fact that nearly every state includes technology-related competencies in its standards at nearly every grade level, this modern and relevant literacy methods book also includes examples of best practices, software packages, and websites.
