Association of Literacy Educators and Researchers
For its 54th annual meeting, the Association of Educators and Researchers met in Omaha, Nebraska at the Hilton Omaha. This year's conference theme was "Literacy Promises", which was also used as the title for this year's Yearbook, Volume 33. This organization has long been the home of some of the nation's most notable literacy experts. At the Omaha conference, these literacy professionals once again engaged participants in dialogue of the utmost importance through their presentations and informal conversations throughout the conference. The articles included in this volume are representative of these dialogues that can lead to transformation, possibilities, and risk. The articles included in this yearbook are: (1) Literacy Lessons for a Lifetime (Laurie Elish-Piper); (2) Literacy Promises and Making Curriculum Together (Brian Schultz); (3) Working ALER (Mary Beth Sampson); (4) "New Rules" for Literacy Learning (Nancy Padak); (5) Talk Opportunities Around Text and the Responses They Elicit from Middle Level English Language Learners (Jennifer Anne Cowgill); (6) Examining Reliability of Reading Comprehension Ratings of Fifth-Grade Students' Oral Retellings (L.
