Keepin' It Real

Integrating New Literacies with Effective Classroom Practice

Schools recognize the power of the new literacies, but it can be a challenge for teachers to weave them into an overcrowded curriculum.

Keepin' It Real looks at these new literacies from the perspective of the needs of a classroom teacher. It illustrates how to use the new literacies to strengthen and support the old ones. It also argues that the new is not possible without the old, and it recognizes the interdependence of twenty-first-century literacies.
