   schema:description "In this book, authors Paul J. Morris II and Stephen Tchudi explore what it means to be a literate person in the real world. Using interviews from a broad range of people, they reveal the gulf between what is taught in most schools and what is used in everyday life. In compelling stories, a college English teacher, a police officer, a newspaper journalist, a street sweeper, a fifth grader, and others tell in their own words how they learned the necessary skills to function at work, in school, and in their communities. The authors identify the common characteristics in each of these stories and suggest ways in which these skills can be fostered in school classrooms and literacy programs. Morris and Tchudi make the case that successful literacy education demands the development and nurturing of complex cognitive skills, which in turn yield the ability to think critically and analytically and to communicate thoughts and ideas clearly and coherently. Through the use of thought-provoking dialogue, they demonstrate how to promote literacy and offer reform strategies, curricula, and teaching innovations that can be adopted by public schools, colleges, and teacher education programs."@en ;
