Book Description:
Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents' Lives, Second Edition focuses on exploring the impact of young people's identity making practices in mediating their perceptions of themselves as readers and writers in an era of externally mandated reforms. What is different in the Second Edition is its emphasis on the importance of valuing adolescents' perspectives in an era of skyrocketing interest in improving literacy instruction at the middle and high school levels driven by externally mandated reforms and accountability measures. A central concern is the degree to which this new interest takes into account adolescents personal, social, and cultural experiences in relation to literacy learning. In this new edition of Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents Lives students voices and perspectives are featured front and center in every chapter. Particular attention is given throughout to multiple literacies especially how information and new communication technologies are changing learning from and with text. Nine of the 15 chapters are new; all other chapters are thoroughly updated. The volume is structured around four main themes: Situating Adolescents Literacies addressing how young people use favorite texts to perform their identities; how they counter school based constructions of incompetence; and how they re/construct their literate identities in relation to certain kinds of gendered expectations, pedagogies, and cultural resources; Positioning Youth as Readers and Writers stressing the importance of classroom discourse, cultural capital, agency, and democratic citizenship in mediating adolescents literate identities; Mediating Practices in Young People s Literacies looking at issues of language, social class, race, and culture in shaping how adolescents represent themselves and are represented by others; and Changing Teachers, Teaching Changes capturing the productive ambiguities associated with teaching urban adolescents to read and write in changing times, encouraging students to conduct action research on topics that are personally relevant, and using enabling constraints as a concept to formulate policies on adolescent literacy instruction. Reconceptualizing the Literacies in Adolescents Lives, Second Edition is an essential volume for researchers, faculty, teacher educators, and graduate students in the field of adolescent literacy education.
