Literacy and Delinquency: Current Status of Reading Interventions with Detained and Incarcerated Youth
Krezmien, Michael P.; Mulcahy, Candace A.
Reading & Writing Quarterly, v24 n2 p219-238 Apr 2008
This article presents the findings of a literature review of reading research investigations in juvenile corrections settings. Six studies met criteria for inclusion in the review and were examined for methodological rigor and the importance of the findings. Authors of two of the articles reviewed demonstrated adequate experimental control, and concluded that intensive, empirically validated research programs can improve reading outcomes for incarcerated youth. The remaining studies had methodological shortcomings that limited the interpretation and generalization of the findings. Recommendations for future research are provided and discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
