Annotated Bibliography of Research Related to the Reading of At-Risk Children. Technical Report No. 482.
Garcia, Georgia Earnest; And Others
Presenting a representative sample of recent (1977-1988) professional literature dealing with reading instruction, development, and performance of children who have been labeled at-risk, this 227-item annotated bibliography encompasses qualitative and quantitative research, literature reviews, and conceptual pieces that are undergirded by empirical research or referenced articles. The bibliography includes both first- and second-language reading research related to literacy concerns of identifiable populations who traditionally have not fared well in American schools. The references have been assigned to one of nine general categories: (1) the development of reading ability; (2) instructional programs; (3) instructional strategies, curriculum, and practices; (4) teacher decisions and behavior; (5) student characteristics and behavior; (6) sociolinguistic considerations; (7) sociocultural perspectives; (8) assessment and referral; and (9) home influences. An author index is attached. (Author/RS)
