Written by one of todays the top literacy scholars, Literacy for Life prepares teachers for the central and important goal of developing lifelong readers by emphasizing higher cognitive and thinking skills while using high quality literature.

Donna Nortons expertise in childrens and multicultural literature is evident throughout, particularly in the wealth of extraordinarily and meticulously well-chosen examples of childrens literature to support literacy development. Literacy for Life makes major advances over existing reading methods texts by broadening the context of literacy, including detailed examples of real lesson plans, instructional units, and illustrated examples as well as strong coverage of writing.

All of these, plus the Extend Your Reading activities in each chapter have been tested in public school classrooms by the author and her proteges. teachers-in-training. Recognizing that todays college classrooms need to offer flexibility in the way material is covered, Literacy for Life is the first literacy text that divides content area reading strategies in two chapters (K-4 and 4-8) to address the need of programs that offer teacher certification in this manner.

Literacy for Life has a strong emphasis on IRA/NCATE Standards and up-to-date scholarship on the No Child Left Behind legislation, along with many recent newspaper articles demonstrating the currency of reading issues. Lastly, the beautiful four-color design of Literacy for Life is tailored for todays visually orientated students and covers all the topics necessary to the preparation of literacy teachers, including: emergent literacy- phonics & phonemic awareness- vocabulary development- comprehension- fluency- assessment & evaluation- reading & literature in the content areas- reading & writing- literacy instruction for ELL, multicultural, and special needs students- computer-assisted instruction- and developing instructional programs that work.
