Malcolm X once said, "Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." While these prophetic words were spoken over 50 years ago, they are meaningful and relevant today. As teachers, we need to understand the value of integrating the best practices in literacy to help students develop, expand, and improve the fundamental skills and tasks associated with knowledge construction. The literacy tools students use for reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing share a common thread to learning in all disciplines. Christine and I believe this edition of the Georgia Journal of Reading provides classroom teachers with useful resources and instructional strategies they can use to guide instruction and ultimately improve student learning.
