Forty-nine academics, researchers, and classroom teachers from the U.S., Australia, and Canada contribute 27 chapters reporting research findings on the role of literacy in the multiple contexts of adolescents' lives. Opening discussions provide an overview of the sociocultural constructions of adolescence and young people's literacies, and explore how youth narrate and describe their own experiences of adolescence and of schooling and literacy development. Subsequent sections focus on teaching and learning in school, literacy outside of school, and the cultural and community contexts of learning. Topics addressed include struggling adolescent learners, standards and assessments, second-language learners and writing, digital literacies in the classroom, preparing adolescents for the literacy demands of the 21st-century workplace and for entering the university, media literacy, and the influences of gender and ethnocultural factors on literacy. For researchers, teachers, teacher educators, scholars, graduate students, and educational policy and funding personnel. Annotation c2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
