ABSTRACT
The role of the literacy professional in the middle and high school has been explored very little in the research literature. Currently, within the United States there is greatly increased interest in literacy for adolescent learners as well as increased funding for literacy professionals in secondary schools. This paper provides a brief history of adolescent literacy issues with a focus on the role of the literacy professional. In addition, current policy concerns are discussed and two program examples are provided.
