B 97148B 97148 Connected Reading: Teaching Adolescent Readers in a Digital World
Grade Lvl: T Author: Turner, Kristen Hawley / Hicks, Troy
Length: 179 Copyright: 2015

As readers of all ages increasingly turn to the Internet and a variety of electronic devices for both informational and leisure reading, teachers need to reconsider not just who and what teens read but where and how they read as well. Having ready access to digital tools and texts doesn't mean that middle and high school students are automatically thoughtful, adept readers. So how can we help adolescents become critical readers in a digital age? Using NCTE's policy research brief Reading Instruction for All Students as both guide and sounding board, experienced teacher-researchers Kristen Hawley Turner and Troy Hicks took their questions about adolescent reading practices to a dozen middle and high school classrooms. In this book, they report on their interviews and survey data from visits with hundreds of teens, which led to the development of their model of Connected Reading: "Digital tools, used mindfully, enable connections. Digital reading is connected reading." They argue that we must teach adolescents how to read digital texts effectively, not simply expect that teens can read them because they know how to use digital tools. Turner and Hicks offer practical tips by highlighting classroom practices that engage students in reading and thinking with both print and digital texts, thus encouraging reading instruction that reaches all students.

B 97174B 97174 Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?: And Other Conversations About Race
Grade Lvl: T Author: Tatum, Beverly Daniel
Length: 453 Copyright: 2017

Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see Black, White, and Latino youth clustered in their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned authority on the psychology of racism, argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious. This fully revised edition is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America. Professional book.
