Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This book presents the rationale and strategies for integrating popular culture texts into the classroom curriculum. The authors share how using popular culture texts to address reader motivation can better support and enhance literacy learning, particularly for reluctant or struggling readers. Writing from a new literacies perspective- which defines literacy beyond reading and writing printed words- the book shows the connection between students' school and literacy learning and their outside experiences with media texts. Part 1, Learning From Research and Classroom Teachers, discusses research and describes teachers' experiences with infusing popular culture text into the literacy curriculum. Part 2, Integrating Popular Culture Texts in Your Classroom, focuses on the specifics teachers need to make popular culture texts work for their literacy learning.
