21st Century Literacy Book Review:

Renita Schmidt and P. L. Thomas The guiding mission of the teacher education program in the university where we teach is to create teachers who are scholars and leaders. While the intent of that mission is basically sound in theory—we instill the idea that teachers at all levels are professionals, always learning and growing in knowledge—that theory, that philosophical underpinning does not insure that the students who complete our program are confident about the act or performance of teaching. In our unique program, students work closely with one teacher and classroom for the entire senior year and then are supervised and mentored during their first semester of teaching; the program is heavily field-based, and it depends on the effectiveness of mentoring throughout the methods coursework and the first semester of full-time teaching. Students tell us this guidance and support is invaluable, and yet we feel the disjuncture between university and school just as many of you in more traditional student teaching settings. Students hear “best practice” information from us in methods classes and they receive ample exposure to the research supporting our field, but have a hard time implementing research-based practices in their cla- room settings and an even harder time finding it in the classrooms around them.

Financial Literacy Education Book Review:

Today's graduates should be grounded in the basics of personal finance and possess the skills and knowledge necessary to make informed decisions and take responsibility for their own financial well-being.

This book shows what you can do to improve financial literacy awareness and education. It covers the use of interactive games and tutorials, peer-to-peer mentoring, and financial literacy contests in addition to more formal education. It gives you a sample of approaches and experiences in the financial literacy arena. Divided into three parts, the book covers financial literacy education for grades K–12, college, and post-college.

Corporate Social Responsibility and Public Libraries Book Review:

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been on the agenda in India for quite some time. The private sector is generally more active in this area than the Governmental and public sector; and the situation is slowly changing. The concept of CSR is finally coming out of the purview of ‘doing social good’ and is fast becoming a ‘business necessity’. This approach to CSR is gaining ground and many corporate houses are realizing the benefits they get in business by extending help to their workers, local community and society at large. There are many corporate companies and voluntary foundations in India who are doing commendable work in education, health, environment and energy under CSR. CSR can also be extended to public libraries, because public libraries are considered as ‘social institutions’ providing basic information for social, economic and cultural development of citizens; and to sustain lifelong learning for students. Public libraries play a vital role in disseminating existing knowledge and promote the creation of new knowledge.

Achieving Adult Literacy Book Review:

Leaders in business and industry are demanding workers who not only can read and write but can think creatively and critically and solve problems. Federal- and state-funded programs and volunteer organizations are involved with adult literacy. Increasingly, corporations are funding adult literacy projects. Adults read for different reasons than they did when in school. Their reading relates to work-related tasks; they read to keep up with current events or for their own enjoyment. A first goal of an adult literacy program should be to enhance the self-esteem and self-concept of low-literate adults. Appropriate instructional strategies are the language experience approach; cooperative learning; dialogue journals; books on tape; tutor as a model for oral reading; cloze procedure; graphic organizers; Know, Want to Know, Learned; and computers. Effective assessment methods are standardized and competency tests, checklists, and portfolios. Programs that show the diversity of adult literacy programs in the United States are intergenerational adult literacy projects; Project: Learn, a literature-based adult literacy program; Siskiyou County READ (Reading, Education, and Development) Project, a rural adult literacy effort; workplace literacy programs; Project Literacy United States; and volunteer efforts. (Nine organizational sources of information and 28 references are appended.) (YLB)

Economic Literacy Book Review:

In its third edition, Economic Literacy: Basic Economics with An Attitude, explains the logic, language, and worldview of economic theory while maintaining the engaging and accessible style that has made earlier editions so successful. While covering the fundamentals of the discipline, the author also includes a wide range of new material focusing on the structure, causes and results of the 'Great Recession'. From microeconomics and macroeconomics to the composition of international and domestic economies, Economic Literacy also makes the key distinction between economics as an academic discipline and the economy as a practical reality. By analyzing this crucial difference, the book encourages students to think critically about the distinctive viewpoint proposed by academic economics and its influence on politics and culture. Using this approach, readers will be enabled to understand both current affairs and professional economics literature, making this book uniquely beneficial for students both practically and theoretically. Never grim, often witty, and frequently insightful into our turbulent financial times, Economic Literacy's third edition is a must for students of economics everywhere.

Literacy Book Review:

The concepts of the past, centered more narrowly on traditional ways of learning to read and write, no longer suffice in a society that requires higher level skills from an increasingly diverse student population. Providing a new direction in literacy education, the chapters in this volume offer a revitalized perspective of literacy. They focus on the forms that literacy will take in the future, the influence of changing technologies and multimedia on curriculum and instructional practices, and on effective learning environments. These chapters incorporate the insights of researchers in several disciplines to examine ways of helping students develop the broad-based literacy skills they will need in order to participate fully in American society. Teachers, teacher educators, and others concerned with the future of nurturing and schooling will find challenging ideas for redefining instruction in literacy in this book.

Handbook of Information Science Book Review:

Dealing with information is one of the vital skills in the 21st century. It takes a fair degree of information savvy to create, represent and supply information as well as to search for and retrieve relevant knowledge. How does information (documents, pieces of knowledge) have to be organized in order to be retrievable? What role does metadata play? What are search engines on the Web, or in corporate intranets, and how do they work? How must one deal with natural language processing and tools of knowledge organization, such as thesauri, classification systems, and ontologies? How useful is social tagging? How valuable are intellectually created abstracts and automatically prepared extracts? Which empirical methods allow for user research and which for the evaluation of information systems? This Handbook is a basic work of information science, providing a comprehensive overview of the current state of information retrieval and knowledge representation. It addresses readers from all professions and scientific disciplines, but particularly scholars, practitioners and students of Information Science, Library Science, Computer Science, Information Management, and Knowledge Management. This Handbook is a suitable reference work for Public and Academic Libraries.

Socially Responsible Literacy Book Review:

This book offers a new vision for teaching literacy to adolescents that moves beyond reading for its own sake and toward reading as a way to motivate students to connect with their world. The authors draw on the voices of adolescent readers to discover how teachers can encourage their students to explore their identities, face injustices, and contribute to their communities. Readers learn how to incorporate the core issues of a socially responsible pedagogy into their own curricula to support strong literacy skills across the content areas. Each chapter includes reflection questions that move the reader toward personal and professional development, along with classroom applications that provide specific strategies and ideas for engaging literacy projects. This dynamic book: Outlines a socially responsible pedagogy that will assist teachers in creating meaningful experiences to motivate even the most disengaged students, takes a critical approach to teaching and learning that recognizes the importance of explicitly addressing issues of power and identity, examines effective school-wide models that promote a climate of responsibility toward the larger society.

The Cultural Work of Corporations Book Review:

The Cultural Work of Corporations argues that corporate culture - the values, customs, and conventions of a business organization - has altered how workers conduct themselves both inside and outside the workplace. Brown demonstrates that corporate culture, an idea celebrated by business magazines and books, human resources departments, executives, and management theorists, is really a means of extending and strengthening work's presence in all aspects of workers' lives, even aspects generally categorized as private. Innovative in its execution, this book draws together a range of literature and information, including popular advice books, organizational theory, fiction, corporate mission statements, business histories, and economic histories.

Literacy Policies and Practices in Conflict Book Review:

Current U.S. school reform efforts link school success, student achievement, and teacher performance to standardized tests and narrowly prescribed curricula. How do test-driven, mandated curricula in urban school systems overtly and subtly impact teachers’ efforts to provide technologically advanced, challenging classroom environments that foster literacy development for all students? How do these federal policies affect instruction at the classroom level? The premise of this book is that, in order for teachers to confront and/or counteract the pressures placed on them from these policies, it is necessary to first understand them. This book takes a close look at the tensions that exist between federal mandates and contemporary literacy needs and how those tensions impact classroom practices. Providing a clear sociopolitical overview and analysis, it combines theoretical explanations with examples from current ethnographic research. Readers are challenged to (re)consider whether meeting test performance benchmarks should be the hallmark of school success when the goal of test performance supersedes the goal of producing highly literate, productive citizens of the future.
