Reading in Middle School: Bumps in the Literacy Crossroads
Hall, Katrina Willard
Voices from the Middle, v16 n2 p72-74 Dec 2008
Certainly a major bump in the literacy road today is the apparent conflict between school literacies and the preferred literacy activities of students outside of school. After family conversation about a nephew who was getting poor grades in language arts, Hall shares her thinking on the dilemmas of what constitutes literacy, how literacies kids honor can be meaningfully incorporated into the classroom, and how we can help students straddle the divide between their preferences and the literacies needed for success in school.
