Reading Research Quarterly, v40 n4 p514-518 Oct-Dec 2005
This is a compilation of reports on international literacy research. The report includes 3 separate reports on France, United Kingdom and Brazil. In the first report, research correspondent Jacques Fijalkow presents research into variations of reading motivation related to students' socioeconomic status (SES), age, and gender. Three of these studies were presented at an international colloquium in Huy, Belgium, in 2002 and later published in a special issue of "Caractere" in 2003. In the second report, Marketa Caravolas reports on a growing body of research involving comparisons of literacy development in English-speaking populations as compared with populations speaking other languages. In the third, and final, report, Renata Junqueira de Souza reports on research carried out by members of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the Department of Education at Sao Paulo State University. They examined the teaching of poetry in Brazil's elementary schools (Departamento de Educacao da Faculdade de Ciencias e Technologia, Universidade Estadual Paulista, 2000), interviewing 53 teachers of third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade students.
