9780807753149: Reading Girls: The Lives and Literacies of Adolescents (Language & Literacy) (Language and Literacy) (Language and Literacy Series) (Language and Literacy (Paperback))

Hadar Ma'ayan shows how schools and literacy pedagogy need to change in this new era to better accommodate and build on new literacies that are the very core of experiences for many contemporary youth.

--From the Foreword by Margaret Finders, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, author of Just Girls: Hidden Literacies and Life in Junior High

Reading Girls captures the voices and literacy experiences of a diverse group of urban adolescent girls. The author--an experienced researcher and middle school teacher--intertwines investigations of multiple literacies, technologies, race, class, gender, sexuality, and gender expression to provide a provocative look at what helps and what hurts adolescent girls in school. Through engaging case studies, we see how traditional schooling fails to make room for crucial life topics, such as grappling with sexual or racial identity, understanding gang culture, or coming of age in urban America. Each chapter concludes with concrete strategies for improving both in- and out-of-school practices to better serve young girls, especially marginalized students.
This important book updates and expands the seminal work done by Margaret Finders in her bestselling book, Just Girls. It includes up-to-date technologies and media forms and addresses contemporary issues of interest to today's adolescent girls.
