Students of the digital age have access to a voluminous amount of
information, and literacy skills are of paramount importance. The Right to Be
Literate: 6 Essential Literacy Skills
Brian M. Pete and Robin J. Fogarty presents F-2 teachers and administrators
with research-based support and standards-aligned strategies to develop the six
literacy skills students will need to think critically and communicate
collaboratively in the 21st century: reading, writing,
listening, speaking, viewing and representing.

Educators can
either read straight through the book to explore all the presented
standards-based strategies for widening literacy skills or look for specific
strategies they haven’t yet tried. The second of each chapter pair includes
assessment ideas and tips for parents to also help students develop literacy
skills for 21st century success. With the book’s
guidance, educators can lead all students, no matter their circumstances, to
grow in literacy and mindfulness.

Readers will

  • learn about receptive language
    and expressive language

  • explore primary-, middle years
    and secondary-level examples for each strategy

  • contemplate standards-based
    strategies and the thinking skills they target

  • answer study discussion questions
    and review literacy strategies to use in a professional learning community

  • consider what parents can do to
    support students’ literacy skills.
