What Research Has to Say About Reading Instruction
What Reading Research Says: The Promises and Limitations of Applying Research to Reading Education
Calls for “research-based instruction” are heard loudly in the United States and elsewhere, but there is a great deal of disagreement and confusion over what the term means. The author advocates for increased thoughtfulness about approaches to and interpretations of research, outlines types and purposes of education research, and discusses how it might best be used to inform literacy teaching.
