From Zora Neale Hurston to Derek Walcott to Toni Morrison, New World black authors have written about African-derived religious traditions and spiritual practices. The Sacred Act of Reading examines religion and sociopolitical power in modern and contemporary texts of a variety of genres from the black Americas. By engaging with spiritual traditions such as Vodou, Kumina, and Protestant Christianity while drawing on canonical Eurocentric literary theory, Anne Margaret Castro presents a novel, nuanced reading of power through the physical and metaphysical relationships portrayed in these great works of New World black literature. Castro examines prophecy in the dramas of Derek Walcott, preaching in the ethnography of Zora Neale Hurston, and liturgy in the novels of Toni Morrison, offering comparative readings alongside the works of Afro-Colombian anthropologist Manuel Zapata Olivella, Jamaican sociologist Erna Brodber, and Canadian fiction writer Nalo Hopkinson. The Sacred Act of Reading is the first book to bring together literary texts, historical and contemporary anthropological studies, theology, and critical theory to show how black authors in the Americas employ spiritual phenomena as theoretical frameworks for thinking within, against, and beyond structures of political dominance, dependence, and power.

Secondary School Reading presents carefully thought out, practical strategies for promoting the development of reading skills at the post-elementary level. Practical applications are presented through their relationship to the theoretical conception of the total reading-learning process as they relate to the learner's needs. Reading instruction in the secondary school is essentially different than elementary instruction in the school. The older young people have different needs and interests and utilize different cognitive strategies. This volume presents strategies for older learners which reflects a thorough knowledge of both reading and teaching, as well as many years of experience in teaching this level. Secondary School Reading is a good blend of theoretical constructs and practical application. Its examples offer the teacher many ideas for learning activities. Its appendices direct the reader to many sources of information and teaching materials.

“This text does an exemplary job of presenting current early literacy research and methods in a manner that can be understood and respected. Also, its emphasis upon workshop-based instruction is very appealing to me as a long-time advocate for this approach to literacy.” –Scott A. L. Beck, Georgia Southern University The third edition of Teaching Language and Literacy: Preschool Through the Elementary Grades integrates a constructivist/emergent literacy perspective with science-based instructional practices. This unique focus on theories and techniques that have proven to be successful helps pre-service and in-service teachers translate principles into classroom practice. Perfect for any course with a focus on language, the book covers the development and teaching of both oral and written language in preschool through elementary grades. Its emphasis on diversity includes special features that describe how teachers can adjust instruction to meet the needs of second-language and bilingual learners. In addition, the third edition focuses on scientifically-based reading research (SBRR) throughout, blending these findings with other perspectives in a “value added” approach to language and literacy teaching and learning. New features include: • •Emphasis on a blended approach to language and literacy instruction, including both authentic learning linked to activities and developmentally-appropriate teaching. •Activities such as “Linking Knowledge to Practice” help students connect theory to practices they observe in preschool and kindergarten classrooms. •In-depth coverage of new federal and state literacy initiatives, standardized literacy assessments, and latest practices in ongoing literacy assessment.
