For decades, educators have struggled to overcome stunted student growth in literacy. Despite efforts toward literacy reform, reading growth commonly flatlines in the secondary years.

Literacy Reframed offers a fresh perspective on reading instruction with a robustly research-affirmed alternative to classroom skill work.

Authors Robin J Fogarty, Gene M Kerns and Brian M Pete use the big three elements of literacy – decoding, vocabulary and knowledge – to guide educators in creating a classroom environment where students deeply engage in reading, writing, speaking and listening. The wealth of concrete, adaptable classroom examples and scenarios throughout the book will help K–12 teachers take action on this exciting approach.

  • Gain thoroughly researched information on current issues and challenges in the world of literacy.
  • Understand how a foundation in decoding and phonics can underpin a lifetime of literacy success.
  • Grasp the necessity of immersing students in words throughout their classroom experience.
  • Discover how essential background knowledge is to reading comprehension.
  • Comprehend digital reading’s role in a literacy-rich classroom.

With Literacy Reframed, you will gain a dynamic path forward for creating classrooms that fully support students on their literacy journeys and prepare them to become not just literate, knowledgeable citizens but also lifelong lovers of reading.
