In this expansive survey, David Booth, one of our foremost authorities on teaching literacy, answers real questions from teachers like you about turning research and theory into effective best practice. Teachers will find the answers they need and can use on almost any topic

  • from phonics and word walls for beginning readers to guided reading, literature circles, and writing journals and workshops for more confident readers;
  • from using traditional texts to comics, songs and the Internet to cover the complete gamut of the new literacies;
  • from using testing as a teaching tool to creating a classroom community that is both diverse and welcoming.

But Literacy 101 is more than just a guide — it’s also the compelling story of one teacher’s journey through literacy. David writes frankly about what has worked and not worked for him over the years, and how what looks good on paper may need to be adapted for a real classroom.

David Booth was Professor Emeritus at OISE–University of Toronto, where he trained teachers to use innovative ways to promote literacy among children for more than 30 years. A prolific author and popular international speaker, David delighted thousands with his energy, enthusiasm, and commitment. Although David passed away in 2018, his dedication to literacy, and his superb body of work in the field, form a lasting legacy in Canadian education.
