There is an immensely important conjunction between literacy and Informationand Communications Technology (ICT). This book considers the application ofICT in raising and widening literacy achievements within the classroom, andexplores ways that ICT can be harnessed to help students develop their literacyskills. Teaching Secondary School Literacies with ICT supports educators in this aimby offering creative examples of good practice. It provides commentary andresearch into what adolescent students are doing, both in formal educationand socially, with regard to ICT and literacy, including: Computer mediated communication Literacy implications of computer games and chatrooms Parents and children using the internet at home, and the implicit literacy skillsinvolved Several contributors provide useful insights into the debate around teenageliteracy cultures and literacy in schools. For example, in schools, word processingand keyboard skills are valued; yet thumb-controlled technologies (games con-soles, texting) are denigrated. This book argues that if we are to encourage pupilsto develop the literacy skills they need for the 21st century, we need a morepositive and creative response to these popular forms of literacy. This inspiring book is key reading for trainee and practising teachers, literacyadvisers and policy makers. Moira Monteith is an educational consultant. She was previously a principallecturer in ICT in Education at Sheffield Hallam University, and before thata teacher. Her previous publications include ICT in the Primary School(Open University Press, 2002).

Being able to read well is one of the most important literacy requirements in our society. It is fundamental to almost all secondary school subjects and the English programme in particular. The new Key Stage 3 focus on teaching reading compels us to find exciting ways to engage young people with texts that they will continue with and develop themselves. This book outlines several approaches to reading which challenge former classroom practices. It is through these approaches that all students - from reluctant boys to the most able of either gender - can continue to grow as readers and develop their readiness to seek meaning in texts. This second edition adds to the original ideas in Geoff Dean's first book and includes new methods of teaching reading, including "guided reading" and using increased grammatical student knowledge.

Constructions of Literacy explores and represents, through a series of cases and commentaries, how and why secondary school teachers and students use literacy in formal and informal learning settings. As used in the context of this book, secondary literacy refers to speaking, listening, reading, writing, and performing. It also refers to how these processes or events are constructed, negotiated, and used for specific purposes by teachers and students as they engage in various classroom, school, and community practices and interactions. The authors operate from a stance that literacy is socially, culturally, and historically constructed. They recognize that there are many different perspectives on how that construction occurs--some arguing for institutional and structural influences--others suggesting that people have some degree of agency within the constraints imposed by larger structures. A distinguishing feature of the volume is that the contributors explore and make explicit differing perspectives on literacy as a social construction. The volume is built around case studies of secondary school teachers' and students' literacy practices inside and outside of schools. The cases include diverse (critical, cultural, feminist, interpretive, phenomenological, and postmodern) theoretical and epistemological perspectives and research methodologies, making this one of the first collections of studies in secondary content area classrooms conducted from multiple perspectives. It concludes with two Commentaries, one by Donna Alvermann and one by David Bloome, in which they discuss and critique the contributions made from the different perspectives and grapple with how they simultaneously illuminate and confuse issues in literacy theory, research, and practice. Preservice and in-service teachers, school professionals, and researchers in literacy education, secondary education, and curriculum theory will find this book stimulating and informative. It will help them analyze the complexities of secondary literacy teaching and learning, and examine their own understandings of literacy within their own literacy contexts.
