Sample text

If for no other reason than that the new Common Core State Standards (National Governors Association Center for Best Practices, Council of Chief State School Officers, 2010) promotes reading and writing in these new ways, we need to get these new forms of reading and writing into our schools. What do today’s teachers need to know about these new literacies? It’s hard to pin down exactly what teachers should know about these new literacies, because they are multiplying so rapidly. Perhaps the best thing for teachers to know about new literacies is that they don’t have to know everything about them!

This is also true when integrating new literacies. Although difficult to define due to various interpretations of what constitutes “new” literacies in the context of changing textual media, the definition that best represents the viewpoint of this text is that of Bean and Harper (2011), who suggest that “new literacies” are the literacies, practices, and competencies needed to use and adapt to constantly changing information and communication technologies. Being able to use, locate, and evaluate information from a web page; participate in an online discussion; listen to a podcast; and develop a video production are a few examples of new information and communication technologies that require students to be critical, active readers.

The danger of buying into the “right way” to teach reading is that teachers can become dependent on others telling them how to help students develop as readers. If teachers are to be empowered as professionals, they must apply their knowledge and beliefs about reading and learning to read in deciding what practices are best for their students and in order to help them be college and career ready. In the pressured world of teaching, it is sometimes easy to lose sight of what we know and believe about children, reading, and how children learn to read.
