The fourth volume in a series begun over 50 years ago, this collection is an authoritative resource that draws on the knowledge and expertise of outstanding scholars and provides crucial information about research, theory, and practice related to secondary school literacy.

Leading scholars, along with newer researchers in literacy education, address topics such as the impact of state and federal mandates on literacy instruction in secondary classrooms, English language learners, and online reading comprehension. Chapter authors include Richard L. Allington, Donna E. Alvermann, Kathleen A. Hinchman, Robert T. Jiménez, Kevin M. Leander, Alfred W. Tatum, and Robert J. Tierney, among others.

Each chapter contains rich discussions of current research as well as practical classroom applications. As one reviewer noted, “Each and every chapter is well-documented and presents clearly established implications for teaching tied to the latest research findings. One of the major strengths of this edited volume lies in the way it points to a remarkable consistency across research findings representing a broad spectrum of disciplinary arenas.”

This volume is a welcome addition for any teacher, administrator, or district looking to implement sound research-based classroom practice and professional development.

Endorsed by the National Conference on Research in Language and Literacy (NCRLL).
