Times are exciting for adolescent literacy research! Researchers are examining adolescents' reading and writing like never before. This department, Research Connections, spotlights scholarly efforts aimed at improving classroom literacy instruction for adolescent learners. It takes a broad, disciplined-inquiry view of research, embracing use-inspired action research at local levels along with randomized field trials at national levels. It looks for productive links between adolescent literacy research and practice. This inaugural column of Research Connections identifies websites that present adolescent literacy research. Increasingly, important reports are being posted online for convenient and immediate access. The websites presented alphabetically in this column offer current research-based recommendations for adolescent literacy program development and classroom instruction.
