The international need for literacy research is as high as ever, as literacy skills serve as a foundation to learning. New research in literacy must address hot topics- some of which have limited amounts of previous research (Cassidy, 2010), while maintaining high degrees of validity, reliability, and applicability. This book series will address these concerns with vigorous research and ample instructional techniques embedded within the chapters.
Each volume will address a current topic that is of particular importance. For instance, three current topics of particular importance are comprehension, response to intervention, and assessment related to literacy education. These would appeal to a broad audience and simultaneously address critical needs within the profession today. This series will include research from reputable authors who will share their expertise to improve the conceptual and practical understanding of reading and writing.
Readers today seek clear, concise, and current chapters that can be read in isolation as well as build upon each other. Literacy Research, Practice, and Evaluation will appeal to readers interested in specific and broad topics alike.
Praise for volume 1:
"Ortlieb and Cheek’s (Eds.), (2012) new book, Using Informative Assessment Toward Effective Literacy Instruction, is a practical guide for school-based and university-based educators to consult when looking for a book that explains the why’s of literacy assessment, the selection of assessments, and the connections between the use of literacy assessments and literacy instruction. Written in an accessible voice and style, this book is destined to become a desk reference for practicing educators around the nation and globe…a real keeper!"
