Distinguished by its examination of literacy from a multidimensional and interdisciplinary perspective, Dimensions of Literacyprovides a strong conceptual foundation upon which literacy curriculum and instruction in school settings can be grounded.This popular text unpackages the various dimensions of literacy – linguistic, cognitive, sociocultural,  developmental – and at the same time accounts for the interrelationships among them. Theory and research are linked to practice in an understandable, user-friendly manner. Both reading and writing processes are addressed. Instructional implications are integrated throughout. Pedagogical features include demonstrations, hands-on activities, authentic reading and writing events that reflect key concepts, and tables and figures to summarize concepts and generalizations about key aspects of literacy.Changes in the Fourth Edition• Addresses academic language, new literacies/multiliteracies and their relationship to literacy learning• More fully addresses the developmental dimension of literacy• Expands the discussion of multimodal literacies• Extends and integrates the discussion of bilingualism and biliteracy throughout the text• Weaves instructional implications more fully throughout the book
