Hudson, John – Composition Forum, 2014
Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Queer (LGBTQ) representation in composition readers remains limited and is frequently nonexistent.

McDaniel, Kathryn N. – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2014
Too often, students reach college without the learning, critical thinking, and literacy skills they need to succeed in higher education.

An argument against marginalization and an advocacy for inclusion of…

Truby, Dana – Instructor, 2012
Teachers know that establishing a robust independent reading program takes more than giving kids a little quiet time after lunch. But how do they set up a program that will maximize their students' gains?

Gleason, Carrie – Knowledge Quest, 2011
In the past few years, there has been increasing demand from school librarians for books for "reluctant readers"--despite the impressive offering of children's literature published each year and the success of blockbuster series like "Harry Potter, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Twilight," and "Hunger Games," among others.

The author really enjoyed reading the study by Cheng and Good (2009). The results of their study seem especially interesting from the point of view of reading comprehension. Indeed, their results mirror to some degree Joyce's (1997) study, in which glossing actually had a somewhat negative effect on third semester second language (L2) readers'…

In this essay, the author shares his vision of the future of reading and describes what he learned from writing a story based on…

Authenticity has been a part of the intellectual resources of language teaching since the 1890s but its precise meaning and implications are contested.
