Help students become more confident and successful readers, writers, and thinkers in today’s world. In this new edition of a bestseller, highly acclaimed author and speaker Heidi Hayes Jacobs offers practical ideas for closing the literacy gap by teaching classic literacies (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) along with essential new literacies (digital, media, and global). The expanded second edition features Heidi’s latest work on the new literacies and provides enhanced versions of strategies designed to help educators integrate critical language skills into their daily operational curriculum. These strategies include: Revising and expanding the role of all teachers so that they see themselves as classical language and contemporary literacy teachers; Separating vocabulary into three distinctive types with distinctive instructional approaches to sustain and extend independent language development; Building creative and visual notetaking and sketchnoting strategies; Designing media projects for every class level and employing a consistent editing and revision policy for writing assignments; Using a formal approach to develop speaking skills through four discussion types to increase civil public discourse; Employing direct technical instruction that promotes the use of the human voice and body as a speaking and communication instrument; Using Curriculum Mapping to develop formal benchmark assessments for active literacy and new literacy cultivation in every subject and on every level. Each chapter is focused on a specific strategy and includes practical examples so you can easily implement the ideas, no matter what grade level or subject area you teach.

"What year are you preparing your students for? 1973? 1995? Can you honestly say that your school's curriculum and the program you use are preparing your students for 2015 or 2020? Are you even preparing them for today?" With those provocative questions, author and educator Heidi Hayes Jacobs launches a powerful case for overhauling, updating, and injecting life into the K-12 curriculum. Sharing her expertise as a world-renowned curriculum designer and calling upon the collective wisdom of 10 education thought leaders, Jacobs provides insight and inspiration in the following key areas: * Content and assessment--How to identify what to keep, what to cut, and what to create, and where portfolios and other new kinds of assessment fit into the picture. * Program structures--How to improve our use of time and space and groupings of students and staff. * Technology--How it's transforming teaching, and how to take advantage of students' natural facility with technology. * Media literacy--The essential issues to address, and the best resources for helping students become informed users of multiple forms of media. * Globalization--What steps to take to help students gain a global perspective. * Sustainability--How to instill enduring values and beliefs that will lead to healthier local, national, and global communities. * Habits of mind--The thinking habits that students, teachers, and administrators need to develop and practice to succeed in school, work, and life. The answers to these questions and many more make Curriculum 21 the ideal guide for transforming our schools into what they must become: learning organizations that match the times in which we live.

What will it take to create truly contemporary learning environments that meet the demands of 21st-century society, engage learners, and produce graduates who are prepared to succeed in the world? What skills and capacities do teachers and leaders need to create and sustain such schools? What actions are necessary? Bold Moves for Schools offers a compelling vision that answers these questions—and action steps to make the vision a reality. Looking through the lenses of three pedagogies—antiquated, classical, and contemporary—authors Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Marie Hubley Alcock examine every aspect of K–12 education, including curriculum, instruction, assessment, and the program structures of space—both physical and virtual—time, and grouping of learners and professionals. In a new job description for teachers, Jacobs and Alcock highlight and expound on the following roles: * self-navigating professional learner, * social contractor, * media critic and media maker, * innovative designer, * globally connected citizen, and * advocate for learners and learning. With thought-provoking proposals and practical strategies for change, Bold Moves for Schools sets educators on the path to redefining their profession and creating exciting new learning environments. The challenge is unprecedented. The possibilities are unlimited.

The urgency to create equity in schools has never been greater, especially since legislators are considering the re-authorization of No Child Left Behind as a means to eliminating the achievement gap. Studies continue to show that increased standards, testing, and accountability have simply maintained the status quo. In response, this book proposes alternative ways of addressing these educational inequities, taking an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the complex historical, social, and global issues that stand in the way of ensuring that all students have access to literacy - issues that policy makers and educators can no longer ignore. "Literacy as a Civil Right "assembles an impressive group of essays that broaden the conversation taking place about school reform, unmasking an ideology that maintains unequal relations of power in school and society. The ideas presented here will help readers re-imagine success in schools by understanding the possibilities that grow from a democratic vision of education. Together, this book provides an alternative framework to increased testing, offering a more humane vision of education that values agency, rigor, civic responsibility, and democracy.

Content Area Reading remains the market-leading text in content literacy and maintains the authors' original objective--to offer an ambitious, coherent, and workable exploration of content literacy. The Ninth Edition comes at a perfect time when there is an increased focus on adolescent literacy. With the point of view that students learn with texts, not necessarily from them, respected authors Rich and Jo Anne Vacca have written this book to be an active learning tool, complete with real-world examples and research-based practices. Thoroughly updated and revised to incorporate topics that touch on contemporary issues such as content standards, assessment, diversity, struggling readers, the No Child Left Behind Legislation, Reading First, and Reading Next, the book continues to provide a framework that focuses on the ability to use reading, writing, speaking, and listening processes to learn subject matter across the curriculum. Accessible and comprehensible, this text takes students through the entire reading process using simple, jargon-free terminology. The methodology presented develops a foundation that can be applied across disciplines, meeting the needs of all students.A Letter to Readers from the Authors To Our Readers: We published the first edition of Content Area Reading in 1981. Some of you may be wondering --with good reason-- why did we have to revise the same book nine times? Has education in general and content literacy in particular changed that much in nearly thirty years to warrant nine editions of the same book? While we have remained true to the original intent of the book throughout these years, our answer to these questions is an enthusiastic Yes We have witnessed dramatic changes over the past three decades in the way we think about literacy, what it means to be literate, and the ways we put literacy to use to learn, enjoy, imagine, explore the world, and interact with others .Some of the revisions that we have made from the eighth to ninth edition alone reflect the rapidly changing landscape of content literacy specifically and education generally: *The renewed and hotly political debate over the role of content knowledge (the what of teaching) and pedagogical knowledge ( the how of teaching); *the development of highly qualified teachers; *teaching, learning, and assessment in a standards-based curriculum; *the role and responsibility of literacy coaches in today's schools; *the crisis in adolescent literacy across ability levels; *the meaning and importance of culturally responsive instruction and literacy strategies for learners who first language is other than English; *the impact of assessment on instructional practices; *the role of confidence, motivation, and engaged learning in literacy-related instructional practices; *the ability to work smart in independent learning contexts; *the meaning and application of new literacies in today's classrooms. Today, one of the hottest topics in education is adolescent literacy.Our book mainly emphasizes how adolescents use literacy to learn across the curriculum; how adolescents will approach reading with enthusiasm and confidence in their ability to make sense out of academic texts. While the focus of our book has always been on instructional strategies, we underscore in this edition the ways that content area teachers can actively engage older students in learning with all kinds of texts, whether printed or digital in nature. Perhaps somewhere in the heavens there is a Greek god of reading who breathes into human beings an intense interest in the act of reading. Perhaps not. The reality of reading school-related texts for many adolescents is simply this: Many of today's older students, regardless of ability level, would rather have root canal surgery than engage enthusiastically in academic reading tasks. Yet we believe that teachers are in a strategic position to make a difference in the way their students approach reading and learn with texts . The pa
