9780415826464: Dimensions of Literacy: A Conceptual Base for Teaching Reading and Writing in School Settings

This popular text, now in its fourth edition, “unpacks” the various dimensions of literacy―linguistic and other sign systems; cognitive; sociocultural; and developmental―and at the same time accounts for the interrelationships among them. Distinguished by its examination of literacy from a multidimensional and interdisciplinary perspective, it provides a strong conceptual foundation upon which literacy curriculum and instruction in school settings can be grounded.

Linking theory and research to practice in an understandable, user-friendly manner, the text provides in-depth coverage of the dimensions of literacy, includes demonstrations and “hands-on” activities, examines authentic reading and writing events that reflect key concepts, and summarizes the concepts in tables and figures.

Changes in the Fourth Edition
· Addresses academic language, new literacies/multiliteracies, and their relationship to literacy learning
· More fully develops the developmental dimension of literacy in separate chapters on adult mediation and learner  construction
· Expands the discussion of multimodal literacies
· Extends and integrates the discussion of bilingualism and biliteracy throughout the text
· Integrates instructional implications more fully throughout

About the Author:

Stephen B. Kucer is Professor of Language and Literacy Education in the Department of Teaching and Learning in the College of Education at Washington State University, Vancouver, USA.

Review:

“Kucer’s Dimensions of Literacy offers a balanced overview of key issues in the psycholinguistics of literacy for current and prospective teachers. The practical examples and engaging exercises help readers grasp the essential concepts presented.”
 Alice Horning, Oakland University, USA

“A comprehensive view of literacy that supports advanced-level teacher thinking and practice,  this text shows how literacy development and practices emerge from complex sources that can best be addressed through educational strategies that engage with literacy’s multiple dimensions.”
 Thomas C. Crochunis, Shippensburg University, USA
