Textbook Review of Literacies by Christine Gajoli
Students are most likely to speak when they believe they will be heard, and they speak better when they have something worthwhile to say. The premise behind Literacies is that the same holds true for writing. Subtitled â€œReading, Writing, Interpretation,â€ Literacies is essentially a reader with an edgeâ€”an agenda of exalting the status of student writersâ€™ voices by encouraging them to read, think, and write critically and contextually. It is a textbook rich in resources yet simultaneously designed for flexibility, making it appropriate for a significant range of college classrooms.
