Just what teachers need to incorporate the rich diversity of home and out-of-school experiences in classroom instruction! This book explores innovative ways to motivate students using all forms of communication — books, magazines, blogs, movies, zines, the internet, television, music, comics, texting, newspapers, rap, video games, collector cards, and more. Based on the belief that literacy takes place everywhere, the book promotes learning strategies that incorporate what we see, read, hear, and do every day. The stories of students, teachers, education leaders, and parents bring immediacy to this powerful book.
