What Can New Literacy Studies Offer to the Teaching of Struggling Readers?
Compton-Lilly, Catherine F.
Reading Teacher, v63 n1 p88-90 Sep 2009
A case study of one student is used to explore three instructional approaches that draw teachers' attention to reading as a social experience that involves culture and identity. These approaches draw on New Literacy Studies, children's media practices, and critical race theory and provide insights on how to better serve struggling readers.
