"The standards-based initiatives that dominate educational policy and practice today typically focus only on the surface skills of reading, isolating teaching and learning from the social and cultural contexts that are a part of every classroom. Fortunately, in this excellent volume edited by Catherine Compton-Lilly, you will enter classrooms in which literacy is treated as more than just as set of skills, and discover solutions and possibilities for providing culturally responsive teaching."
