QEd: Scientific Evidence for Adult Literacy Educators. Number 1 of 5
Kruidenier, John R., Ed.
Partnership for Reading
QEd is a five-issue series for the adult education community--literacy educators, paraprofessionals, program directors, and volunteers. QEd brings ideas and information from the expanding scientific research base on how adults learn to read. This first issue tells the story of how researchers are using the high quality, scientific standards that adult literacy deserves and demands. This issue also brings news of an exciting new publication, "Applying Research in Reading Instruction for Adults: First Steps for Teachers," which offers specific connections between the research and the classroom. In future issues, QEd will amplify the key literacy elements discussed in this book. This issue contains the following articles: (1) Adult Literacy Research Working Group (ALRWG) Committee Update; (2) Milestone; (3) Publications; and (4) Resource Spotlight.
Descriptors: Scientific Research, Adult Literacy, Reading Instruction, Publications, Teachers, Educational Research, Classroom Research, Evaluation Methods
