"Because African American adolescent males and face their own challenges, they must identify texts that mark their times and their lives. If we create opportunities for this to happen, they will not only begin to trust the texts, they will begin to trust us, too. Then maybe, we'll hear one of them say, Education is on our side,' or, 'I used to keep it gutter, but now I am all good.' This is my hope." -Alfred Tatum No reading strategy, no literacy program, no remediation will close the achievement gap for adolescent African American males. These efforts will continue to fail our students, says Alfred Tatum, until reading instruction is anchored in meaningful texts that build academic and personal resiliency inside and outside school. In Reading for Their Life Tatum takes a bold step beyond Teaching Reading to Black Adolescent Males. He shows how teachers can encourage adolescent African American males to connect with reading by defining who they are through textual lineages-texts with significance, carefully chosen for instruction because they are useful to young black males and because they matter. With works ranging from Up from Slavery and Sounder to the contemporary Handbook for Boys, Tatum helps you: understand what adolescent African American male readers need select enabling texts that have worked in Tatum's own teaching build textual lineages by putting meaningful texts at the core of a challenging curriculum engage readers in the curriculum through essential questions, writing, and self-assessment.

"They continue to underperform in school as they wait for educators to get it right."

In recent years the issue of boys and literacy, namely that they are worse at it compared to girls, has become a key area of interest to all those concerned with the education of our children. This book highlights the key factors causing this divide and discusses the implementation of new strategies to overcome it, which have been the result of extensive qualitative research made by the author. Trisha Maynard reports case study findings of a primary school whose staff wanted to explore and improve boys' attitudes towards and attainment in literacy, and in particular their difficulties with writing. The book highlights issues concerning the reading and writing of stories, what teachers understand by 'good story writing' and the importance of teachers exploring boys' and girls' difficulties with literacy by themselves. It provides significant insight into boys' difficulties with writing as well as informing teachers how to find out about children's attainment.

Giving teachers the confidence they need to teach reading in today's classrooms, Diane Nettles takes students on a journey of understanding reading as a social endeavor (the whole), of learning to teach the skills children need to be successful readers, and finally, of motivating children to read a lot--the "heart" of learning to read. In this no-nonsense textbook, preservice teachers are reflective as they learn scientifically-based strategies for teaching the "whole," the "parts," and the "heart" of literacy. The interactive approach of Literacy Instruction in Today's Classrooms: The Whole, the Parts, and the Heart uses interesting and engaging in-class examples and vignettes to motivate teachers to learn reading theory and its application in the classroom. Readers come away with a thorough understanding of comprehensive literacy instruction that is the most current in the field and of the reality of learning to read.
