In this expansive survey, David Booth, one of our foremost authorities on teaching literacy, answers real questions from real teachers. Discover practical advice on almost any topic: from phonics to literature circles; from using traditional texts to embracing comics, songs, and internet sources; from using testing as a tool to creating a diverse classroom community; and much more. But Literacy 101 is also the compelling story of one teacher’s journey through literacy. David writes frankly about what worked for him and what didn’t, and how what looks good on paper may need to be adapted for a real classroom.
