"Teaching New Literacies in Grades K--3 is the right book at the right time. It expands the definition of 'new literacies' to include the skills and strategies needed for reading, understanding, and evaluating not only electronic and digital texts, but also other types of texts that have grown in importance in the lives of primary-grade children. This is one of those books that offers too much information for a single reading--teachers are likely to return to it time and again to find answers to questions new and old." - Jeanne R. Paratore, Department of Literacy and Language, Counseling and Development, Boston University, USA "This book is jam-packed with lessons to incorporate new literacies, especially critical literacies, into any primary-grade classroom! These lessons provide readers with an understanding of the research as well as examples from real classrooms across the country. From hip hop to folk literature, from digital storytelling to high-stakes testing as a genre, this user-friendly book has it all. Current classroom teachers will come away with new ideas for their classrooms and preservice teachers will learn how to incorporate new literacies into their instruction. This book would be a great addition to advanced literacy methods courses at the undergraduate and graduate level." - Jennifer Garrette Lisy, former kindergarten and first-grade teacher, Chicago, Illinois, USA "I am eager to introduce this book to the teachers I work with. The consistent format makes it easy to read and access the lessons in each chapter. I also appreciate the inclusion of the research base for using the different text types. The book's ideas for differentiated instruction offer crucial assistance for teachers striving to meet the needs of all their K--3 learners. The cutting-edge resources in these pages are exciting and engaging." - Michelle Lewis, Literacy Leader, Reading First, North Parkway Elementary Magnet School, Jackson, Tennessee, USA "This book will help primary-grade teachers use a wide range of text types to provide students with engaging choices and critical learning opportunities. The chapters provide concrete, standards-based lesson plans. I was struck by the many genres that often go untaught in K--3, including most of the informational texts. It is absolutely wonderful to get lesson ideas for teaching such a wide variety of text types." - Dawnene D. Hassett, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Wisconsin--Madison, USA
