JOURNALS

by Mrs. Chit Olivares, GS Librarian

Literacy is defined as the quality or state of being literate. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) defines literacy as the “ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate, compute and use printed and written materials associated with varying contexts. Literacy involves a continuum of learning in enabling individuals to achieve their goals, to develop their knowledge and potential, and to participate fully in their community and wider society.” Literacy is a worldwide concern that the UNESCO proclaimed September 8 as International Literacy Day since 1965. On the other hand, October is a month dedicated to Teen Read Week.It is an annual literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), which encourages teens to take time to “read for the fun of it.” The 2010 Teen Read Week will be celebrated on October 17 -23 with the theme, “Books with Beat @ your library”. This event focuses on reading not only books but journals as well. Among the many print and online journals promoting reading and literacy are the following:

The Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy is the only literacy journal published exclusively for teachers of older learners. Each issue offers practical, classroom-tested ideas grounded in research and theory. Whether you work with new, struggling, or skilled readers, you’ll find something of interest in JAAL.

The Reading Teacher is a professional journal for teachers who work with children up to age 12. Inside every issue you’ll find.

  • Practical, evidence-based teaching ideas to meet the needs of all learners
  • Articles to help you transform research into effective practice
  • Information on the most critical issues in teaching, written by educators for educators
  • Content that’s ideal for professional development in any setting—on your own, in a school-based learning community, or in teacher education.

School Library Journal provides librarians who work with young people in school and public libraries with indispensable information needed to manage libraries-from creating high-quality collections to understanding how technology can assist (or hinder) learning.
