International Reports on Literacy Research: France and Argentina
Malloy, Jacquelynn A., Comp.; Botzakis, Stergios, Comp.
Reading Research Quarterly, v41 n4 p540-543 Oct-Dec 2006
This is a compilation of two separate reports on international literacy research from France and Argentina. In the reports from France, research correspondent Jacques Fijalkow detailed three research projects that included the following: (1) A description of adult literacy skills; (2) An investigation of how study-abroad students were integrated with foreign-language communities; and (3) A study aimed to reduce school failures in reading and math in the late elementary years. In the reports from Argentina, research correspondent Melina Porto presented the results of a research project that examined stereotypical representations produced from narrative texts and expanded on an earlier report that described the process of undergraduate reading in a foreign or second language. In Porto's second report, she presented the results of a project involving mixed-level English classes carried out in 2003 by Alicia Artusi, a curriculum materials writer and head of the English department of a private school in Argentina.
