Dillon, Deborah R.; O'Brien, David G.; Heilman, Elizabeth E.
Reading Research Quarterly, v35 n1 p10-26 Jan-Mar 2000
Argues that literacy inquiry has often been less effective than it should be. Recommends pragmatism as a restorative tonic for the field. Offers 3 dimensions for researchers to use in reexamining with whom they do research; to reflect on selecting problems for inquiry; and to reconsider how research traditions and methodologies are defined and used in the conduct of research.
