How to end the reading war and serve the literacy needs of all

Cover, How to End the Reading War by Paul Thomas

Thomas’ book is published by Information Age Publishing.

Education Professor Paul L. Thomas has written a new book, “How to End the Reading War and Serve the Literacy Needs of All Students: A Primer for Parents, Policy Makers, and People Who Care.”  Thomas, who taught high school English in rural South Carolina before moving to teacher education, says the book “confronts some of the most compelling but misunderstood aspects of teaching reading in the U.S. while also offering a way toward ending the reading war in order to serve all students, regardless of their needs.” Read more about the book, published by Information Age Publishing, in his blog.

Thomas is former column editor for English Journal (National Council of Teachers of English), current series editor for “Critical Literacy Teaching Series: Challenging Authors and Genres” (Brill/Sense Publishers), and author of “Teaching Writing as Journey, Not Destination: Essays Exploring What ‘Teaching Writing’ Means” (IAP). His teaching and scholarship focus on literacy and the impact of poverty and race on education, as well as confronting the political dynamics influencing public education in the U.S.
