Research on Reading Development of Adult English Learners: An Annotated Bibliography.
Adams, Rebecca; Burt, Miriam
This annotated bibliography was developed to present a comprehensive view of the research conducted on reading development among adult English language learners in the United States in the past 20 years. Articles included were selected through searches of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC, U.S. Department of Education), Modern Language Association, and Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts databases, as well as through source lists from other relevant research. The searches included research published from 1980-2001. The bibliography includes the following sections: research consulted, criteria for inclusion of research, learner population and instructional settings, terms used to describe reading, types of research studies, keywords, how to use the bibliography, acknowledgements, and request for input.
