In this book you will read many examples of rich literacy conversations between a teacher and his 8th grade students that never would have occurred face to face in the classroom. These conversations take place online when 8th graders write to their teacher about the books they’re interested in reading and choosing to read independently. Students write about what happens when they read or don’t read, how they feel about reading, how they’re connecting with characters and ideas, why they don’t have enough time to read, and what their reading goals are. And their teacher writes back to them. Every week. After each conversation you will read some “meta-talk” that shines a light on what the conversation has taught us about this language learner and how this “data”is informing our beliefs and practices. Embedded within the chapters are suggested resources (articles, book recommendations, links, websites, blogs, etc.) you can follow should you want to read more in that chapter. What these students reveal about their own literacy development- their successes, their challenges, their lives- and how their teacher nudges them along socially, emotionally and academically, teach us the value and power of one practical, authentic literacy tool- the Reading Conversation Journal.

Basic skills tests (based on the National Standards for adult basic skills) were carried out between June 2002 and May 2003, on a sample of over eight thousand adults normally resident in England. The tests were combined with a background questionnaire (social survey). This report provides many detailed statistics but some of the the main findings are noted below. 44 per cent of the respondents achieved Level 2 or above in the literacy assessment, but 16 per cent were classified at Entry level 3. In the numeracy test, 25 per cent achieved Level 2 or above, but 47 per cent were classified at Entry level 3 or below. Overall, 47 per cent were classified at Entry level 3 or below, in either literacy or numeracy, and only 18 per cent achieved Level 2 or above for both literacy and numeracy.
