Walker-Dalhouse, Doris; Risko, Victoria J.
Reading Teacher, v61 n5 p422-424 Feb 2008
Urban schools represent educational challenges for teachers, but they can also provide models for effective instruction for linguistically, culturally, and racially diverse students. In this "Reading Research Into the Classroom" column, the authors examine the research on high-achieving urban schools and make appropriate instructional recommendations in order for other schools to find the same success.
