ABOUT THE AUTHORS
In Developing Adolescent Literacy in the Online Classroom, the authors have creatively reexamined a variety of teacher favorite literacy tools, methods, and strategies through the lens of online learning. As online and hybrid education continues to expand exponentially, impactful resources like this should be loaded on teacher devices and stacked on bookshelves for educators at every level!
— Jeremy Wendt, professor and chair, Educational Technology, Tennessee Tech University
As the principal of an online public virtual school, I am often challenged to find viable resources for my staff to help them battle the literacy challenges we face in the online platform. For many of our students, our virtual school setting is their last hope, and they have come to us educationally years behind. Developing Adolescent Literacy in the Online Classroom is the first book that I have come across that is geared directly towards the online and blended learning platforms. This resource is exactly what I have been hoping to find for my teachers to empower our students to be successful. This book will be a staple for our professional developments and PLC conversations. Big thanks to Eisenbach and Greathouse for paving the way for online education resources!

Developing Adolescent Literacy in the Online Classroom: Strategies for All Content Areas is a fabulous sourcebook for novice and veteran teachers alike who are diving into the waters of teaching in online spaces. This book provides educators with new and innovative approaches that can be used to engage even the most reluctant of learners. Eisenbach and Greathouse do so by showing teachers how to help students develop authentic literacy practices across subject areas in order to deepen student content area knowledge. This book belongs on the shelf of every teacher who cares about implementing meaningful literacy practices in effective online instruction.

Eisenbach and Greathouse are “spot on” in advocating for ways to cultivate community in virtual classrooms before (and while) introducing content. I know of no other book that accomplishes this charge with the same clarity and passion.
