"The foundational competencies of reading, critical interpretation, and composing are more important than ever, and the effective ways of teaching these things are more important than ever. At the same time, these skills have become more complex and more challenging. Now kids need to know how to read traditional text and how to critically read videos, pictures, and graphs. And they must understand how these work together" (Jeff Wilhelm, 2000, p. 7).
