Written with teachers in grades 4 through 8 in mind, Literacy in the Middle Grades has been crafted to answer the questions of teachers working with young adolescents. By addressing the realities of teaching in the middle grades – the changing needs of adolescents; the increasing diversity in the classroom; the constantly changing technology available to teachers; the newest federal, state, and curricular demands – this thoroughly applied new edition situates literacy instruction in the contemporary classroom to help new and experienced teachers help young adolescents develop strong literacy skills.
