Description: Once upon a time, the three "R"s sufficed. Not any more -- not for students, not for Americans. Gone the way of the little red school house is simple reading and writing instruction. Surveying an increasingly complex discipline, Literacy in America offers a comprehensive overview of all the lastest trends in literacy education -- conceptual understanding of texts, familiarity with electronic content, and the ability to create meaning from visual imagery and media messages.

Educators and academicians call these skills "multiple literacies, " shorthand for the kind of literacy skills and abilities needed in an age of information overload, media hype, and Internet connectedness. With its 400 A-Z entries, researched by experts but written in accessible prose, Literacy in America is the only reference tool students, teachers, and parents will need to understand what it means to be -- and become -- literate in 21st- century America.
