Book Review: Literacy Matters
In the text, Literacy Matters: Strategies Every Teacher Can Use by Robin Fogarty is a very, very general and quick resource for those seeking strategies. Given the other amazing texts I've recently read, I was not particularly impressed with this one. I found it to be lacking depth, research, and resources. It is not one that I would recommend to other secondary teachers interested in literacy strategies because it is a little too "fast food" for my taste. This review is in response to the second edition of this text.
