Their impact on instruction and the needs of students are studied in conjunction with RtI/MTSS programs, progress monitoring and differentiation, instructional technologies related to twenty-first century literacies, updated information about effective academic language instruction for English learners, and a moral imperative for fostering equity, social justice, and global perspectives. The Fourth Edition also provides Resource Materials to support the text, giving it a great deal of flexibility to explore projects for portfolios and self-assessment. In the real world, as learners among learners, literacy professionals use their experiences and voices for advocacy to help prepare students for success in their lives and careers.

Women + Military = Entrepreneurs Career military? Leaving the military for civilian life? You can leverage your experience into some great new business startup ideas. Business success: Military spouses can face serious challenges when trying to develop a career while part of the military life, or equally serious challenges when they transition to civilian life. But, help is on the way in Mission Entrepreneur: Applying Lessons from Military Life to Create Success in Business Startups Finding startup ideas that can make you a business success: Are you trying to find your niche in our modern world of underemployment and the self-employed, where many are looking for great startup ideas and the opportunity to build wealth and find happiness and fulfillment? Some of the best startup ideas are yet to be discovered and Mission Entrepreneur will guide you through Jen E. Griswold's journey toward realizing her personal dream of becoming one of the successful women entrepreneurs. Experiencing underemployment as a military spouse, she learns how to turn her military experience into business success. The underemployment problem: Being a military spouse comes with sacrifices. Spouses give up college degrees, careers and put other plans on hold due to military relocations. The country feels the effects. Reports show that 90% of female spouses face underemployment and countless income tax dollars are lost. As both a spouse and veteran for 20 years, Jen E. Griswold witnessed many spouses trying to keep a career going through their first few assignments. After multiple failed attempts and the addition of kids, they often gave up, deciding their efforts were futile. Their confidence waned and they began to question their self-worth. Women entrepreneurs: Ironically, these same people have the perfect set of skills needed to become successful women entrepreneurs: work ethic, vision, passion, and resilience. These are the exact same skills that have helped them endure a life of sacrifice in the military. But, in most cases, they have given up on their own personal big visions to change the world. Using a lifetime of experience, military trained veterans entering the job force know how to manage the bumpy journey to becoming men and women entrepreneurs and finding those great startup ideas. Mission Entrepreneur: From her extensive training in the Air Force and experience coaching women over the past several years, Griswold discovered that by giving back to her military community, she could change the world a little bit every day. America needs more men and women entrepreneurs who pay it forward and here is where we’ll start. Welcome to Mission Entrepreneur.
