All students deserve inclusive and engaging learning experiences. Opportunities for student growth and environments that honor culture and language are essential in a modern society that promotes inclusivity. Thoughtful disciplinary literacy practices offer embedded opportunities across grade levels and content areas to support inclusive classroom cultures. Therefore, the value of culturally and linguistically responsive pedagogy, supported through literacy experiences, should not be underestimated and should become a priority within K-12 education. Disciplinary Literacy as a Support for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching and Learning develops a conceptual framework and pedagogical support for disciplinary literacy practices related to culturally and linguistically responsive teaching and learning. It presents a variety of research and practice protocols supporting student success through explored connections between disciplinary literacy and inclusive pedagogical practices. Covering topics such as cultural awareness, racialized text, and gender identity development, this premier reference source is an indispensable resource for pre-service teachers, educators of K-12 and higher education, educational administration, government officials, curriculum directors, literacy professionals, professional development coordinators, teacher preparation programs, libraries, researchers, and academicians.

Based on extensive research on the features that make children's books appealing and appropriate, this valuable teacher resource offers guidance on selecting books, strategies for specific grade levels, suggestions for extension, and tips for assessment. This teacher-friendly book is organized around the major genres — traditional literature, picture books, nonfiction, poetry, and multicultural texts — that will inspire young readers. Throughout the book, teachers will find suggestions for using literature to implement shared reading, reading aloud, and response strategies with emergent, developing, and independent readers. This comprehensive book is rooted in the belief that educators must consider and offer a wide range of choice to ensure that students read "good" books. It argues that the choices children make about what they read should be governed by their interests and desire to learn; not by a grade or reading level.
