"As an English educator, reading this book reinforced some of my current views but also exposed me to issues I haven't considered in the past. Through reflecting on "Adolescent Literacy Research and Practice," I've had my opportunity to re-visit my understanding of Adolescent Literacy; this experience will certainly impact my own research and classroom practice."--"English Quarterly"
"Clearly written with a focus on both theory and practice, this volume provides a much-needed look at adolescent literacy. By including chapters from many of the outstanding researchers and practitioners working in this field, Jetton and Dole have assembled crucial information about what we know about adolescent literacy and what we still need to find out. Because of its broad coverage, this book can serve as a text or as a professional reference. Researchers, graduate students, and teachers of adolescents will find this work a valuable resource."--Sharon B. Kletzien, PhD, Department of Literacy, West Chester University of Pennsylvania
"This book represents cutting-edge research, theory, and practice, written by leading authors in the field of adolescent literacy. The range of topics it covers is most impressive, including vital issues such as motivation and second language learning, literacy in the content domains, culturally responsive practice, assessment, computer technology, and teaching struggling adolescent readers. This is a resource that all literacy researchers, teacher educators, and teachers will find invaluable. I highly recommend it as a basic text for graduate-level courses in literacy foundations, content area literacy, English methods, and adolescent literacy."--Suzanne E. Wade, EdD, Department of Teaching and Learning, University of Utah
"Finally, a book that fills a gaping hole in the area of adolescent literacy. Jetton and Dole have gathered together some of the best researchers in the field and have edited a book that should be mandatory reading for preservice middle and high school teachers. The volume will also serve as a valuable resource for teachers 'in the trenches' and for researchers."--Sherrie L. Nist, PhD, Division of Academic Enhancement, University of Georgia
