Extreme Reading in the Middle Grades guides teachers on how to effectively improve student engagement and performance by implementing technology. The book will begin with a rationale for including technology in the classroom, with a review of theory and research that supports the contention that technology plays a big part in the literacy of adolescents. Following chapters will guide teachers on how to build classroom projects that take advantage of adolescent literacy. Reading and writing performance of students is at the root of Extreme Reading in the Middle Grades. As a reading specialist, the author incorporated technology in her class specifically to address the reading and writing needs of her students. This book is intended to help other educators take advantage of out-of-school literacy practices to enhance adolescent literacy learning.
