Summary

This textbook brings together internationally renowned scholars to provide an overview of print and digital literacy instruction for pre-service teachers and teacher educators. It examines historical and cultural contexts of literacy practices around the globe, and addresses issues that teachers need to consider as they teach children from diverse world cultures, languages, and backgrounds.

Organized into three Parts—Early Literacy, Adolescent Literacy, and Case Studies, the text highlights key practices around the world to provide literacy educators and students with a broader view of effective practices as well as strategies for overcoming challenges faced by literacy educators worldwide . The global case studies present complex issues and allow readers to discuss what it means to be globally minded, as well as how to implement best practices in literacy instruction. All chapters include consistent elements for ease of use, such as vignettes, historical and cultural contexts, implications for future research, and discussion questions.

Grounded in current research and theory, this book is designed for foundational courses in literacy education and literacy methods, as well as courses in comparative and multicultural education.
