Research Within Reach: A Research-Guided Response to Concerns of Reading Educators.
Weaver, Phyllis; Shonkoff, Fredi
In an attempt to find a new approach to making research applicable to the classroom, this book is organized around questions about reading instruction posed by a group of 14 teachers, supervisors, and administrators. The book contains 24 questions presented in the form of actual classroom situations. In order to clarify the question, each of these scenarios provides information about the context in which the problem arose. Each scenario is followed by a discussion which draws on research findings and professional experience; references recommended for additional reading on the topic are also included. The scenarios are divided into five categories: the nature of reading and its instruction, reading readiness, developing reading skill, reading comprehension, and difficulties in developing reading skill.
