    One thought on “Handbook of Adolescent Literacy Research”

    1. Good resource for the English teacher, literacy coach, or scholar in the area of adolescent literacy. The opening is a very good examination of the changes in adolescent literacy over the past decades. Some of the chapters are especially insightful while others tell the reader little that any 6-12 English teacher would not think common knowledge. Some of it is practical to teachers and researchers, some of it what we wish could be the case in our schools.
