American Reading Achievement: Should We Worry?
Chall, Jeanne S.
Research in the Teaching of English, v30 n3 p303-10 Oct 1996
Examines three questions concerning the quality of reading and writing among students: (1) is reading achievement today better or worse than in the past? (2) how well do students read in relation to the demands of their schooling and their later work? and (3) how different is reading achievement by socio-economic status? Finds that the perceived decline in reading is real. (TB)
