International Reading Association (NJ3)
For years this landmark book has helped educators, graduate students, and researchers shape their curriculum and stay informed about the latest developments in literacy research and instruction. This fifth edition continues the book's tradition of exemplary scholarship and remains a resource for the most innovative thinking in the field. Although some pieces from past editions have been retained, this edition highlights more recent works and reflects new findings and promising directions in the literacy. More than two-thirds of the 56 articles are new to this edition. Questions for reflection accompany each section to prompt discussion and deeper thinking about theory, research, and instruction. Following a preface and information about the editors and contributors, the book is divided into three sections. Section One, Perspectives on Literacy Research and Its Application: Viewing the Past, Envisioning the Future, includes the introduction and chapters: (1) Looking Back, Looking Forward: A Conversation About Teaching Reading in the 21st Century (Richard L. Allington and Anne McGill-Franzen); (2) A Historical Perspective on Reading Research and Practice (Patricia A.
