Literacy, Language and Learning

The Literacy, Language, and Learning Series, based on the Socio-Cultural Perspective, presents reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing as integral components for the development of thoughtful citizens. The authors believe that thoughtful citizens are those who are capable of understanding the principles of a pluralistic and democratic society and the power of multimedia on the human condition. Therefore, the authors conclude that educators have a special responsibility to challenge our children to analyze, question, and take action for the common good.

The books in the Literacy, Language, and Learning Series present literacy learning as essential to language development and school success. Specifically, these books pursue action research, culturally responsive teaching, inspiring writing, English language learning, and successful communication for home, school, and community connections. While reading and reflecting on these books, preservice and inservice educators will learn the most recent literacy education information while enhancing their professional lives.
