About the Author

Edited by Leila Christenbury, EdD, Virginia Commonwealth University, USA, Randy Bomer, PhD, University of Texas at Austin, USA, and Peter Smagorinsky, PhD, University of Georgia, USA


"This Handbook contributes significantly to the understudied - and misunderstood - domain of adolescent literacy. By attending to adolescents and their literacy practices within a variety of contexts, the editors and authors resist conventional assumptions about adolescents, literacy, and proficiency or struggle. I look forward to using this volume in my own research and in my work with graduate students and inservice and preservice teachers." - Elizabeth Birr Moje, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Education, University of Michigan, USA "A provocative work that challenges received wisdom and current policy even as it catalogues important developments in the field!.The volume's images of diverse adolescents and their literacies, along with careful examinations of theory, policy, and pedagogy, position the Handbook as a significant resource for graduate education in literacy studies." - Kevin M. Leander, Department of Teaching and Learning, Vanderbilt University, USA
