Literacy researchers at all stages of their careers are designing and developing innovative new methods for analyzing data in a range of spaces in and out of school. Directly connected with evolving themes in literacy research, theory, instruction, and practices—especially in the areas of digital technologies, gaming, and web-based research; discourse analysis; and arts-based research—this much-needed text is the first to capture these new directions in one volume. Written by internationally recognized authorities whose work is situated in these methods, each chapter describes the origin of the method and its distinct characteristics; offers a demonstration of how to analyze data using the method; presents an exemplary study in which this method is used; and discusses the potential of the method to advance and extend literacy research. For literacy researchers asking how to match their work with current trends and for educators asking how to measure and document what is viewed as literacy within classrooms, this is THE text to help them learn about and use the rich range of new and emerging literacy research methods.

Many of these narratives are the first time tellings of the challenges and successes found in the works of this group of scholars of historic significance. This collection is written and organized into practical and easy-to-digest sections. They are part history lesson and part practical teaching tool for those who prepare school leaders. Anyone from school leaders to academics interested or charged with unpacking the messy intersections between school leadership and issues of social justice will find inspiration and easy to understand explanations of leadership and equity work within the chapters presented. Frameworks of discussion range from reflections of what aspects are needed to build international collaboratives to what political forces have expanded the understandings of leadership to recognize the uncomfortable tensions centered on economy, race, sexual identity, and gender, within the international community that is educational leadership. A focus is given to the potency of the consistent mundane actions that engage school leaders as well as toward the sweeping policies that equally affect the culture and quality of schools worldwide.
