      Abstract:

      "Teaching the Dimensions of Literacy" provides the conceptual
      knowledge to support teachers' instructional decisions in the
      reading/literacy classroom and features a multitude of instructional
      strategy lessons for classroom use with both monolingual and bilingual
      students. Its premise is that literacy comprises four
      dimensions--linguistic, cognitive, sociocultural, and developmental.
      In the debate over literacy instruction, and in many reading/literacy
      methods texts, one dimension tends to be privileged and the others
      ignored. In this text, the teaching and learning of all four
      dimensions of literacy are acknowledged and addressed. The four
      dimensions provide a coherent conceptual framework within which
      instructional strategy lessons are identified, synthesized, organized,
      and presented--demonstrating how the complex nature of literacy can be
      addressed within a classroom setting.
