Welcome to the companion website for our text! Adolescents and the contexts in which they learn, media, and literacies continue to evolve, sometimes at a breakneck pace. Those of us who work with adolescents need to engage in ongoing reconceptualizations of this work. To help with this process, the chapters in this book offer rich, varied accounts of youth situating, mingling, and enhancing their everyday and academic literacies, as well as of teachers and teacher educators learning to facilitate their use of texts of all kinds.
This website offers questions and resources to explore and use as you ponder the authors’ research about adolescents’ identities, everyday literacies, integration of everyday and academic literacies, sociocultural and identity aspects of literacies, and teachers’ efforts to stay abreast of these evolving issues. We offer a special thanks to Elizabeth Stevens, from Syracuse University, for helping us to locate many of the websites that we’ve included here.
