Theoretical models and processes of literacy( )

The Seventh Edition of this foundational text represents the most comprehensive source available for connecting multiple and diverse theories to literacy research, broadly defined, and features both cutting-edge and classic contributions from top scholars. Two decades into the 21st century, the Seventh Edition finds itself at a crossroads and differs from its predecessors in three major ways: the more encompassing term literacy replaces reading in the title to reflect sweeping changes in how readers and writers communicate in a digital era; the focus is on conceptual essays rather than a mix of essays and research reports in earlier volumes; and most notably, contemporary literacy models and processes enhance and extend earlier theories of reading and writing. Providing a tapestry of models and theories that have informed literacy research and instruction over the years, this volume's strong historical grounding serves as a springboard from which new perspectives are presented. The chapters in this volume have been selected to inspire the interrogation of literacy theory and to foster its further evolution. This edition is a landmark volume in which dynamic, dialogic, and generative relations of power speak directly to the present generation of literacy theorists and researchers without losing the historical contexts that preceded them. Some additional archival essays from previous editions are available on the book's eResource. New to the Seventh Edition: Features chapters on emerging and contemporary theories that connect directly to issues of power and contrasts new models against more established counterparts. New chapters reflect sweeping changes in how readers and writers communicate in a digital era. Slimmer volume is complemented by somechapters from previous editions available online

The Effects of Explicit Instruction on Critical Reading and Argumentative Writing The TASK of Reading and Writing by Norman J Unrau( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study investigated the impact of a procedure called Thesis Analysis and Synthesis Key (TASK), which was embedded in a curriculum designed to help high school students read and write arguments. Subjects, 120 11th-graders in San Francisco were instructed in argumentation under 3 conditions. Their gains in the ability to read arguments were measured with adaptations of the Ennis-Weir Essay Test of Critical Thinking; their gains in the ability to write arguments were measured by holistic scores. Results indicated that in reading arguments, students who received instruction in TASK demonstrated statistically significant improvement. In writing arguments, only those students given TASK in a cooperative learning environment made significant gains in holistic scores when direct comparisons of treatments were made. However, the pre-to-post holistic scores of students in both TASK conditions showed significant gains. In both the reading and writing of arguments, low achieving readers receiving TASK made significantly greater gains than their low achieving counterparts in the control treatment, indicating that facilitators like TASK help students to improve in both the reading and writing of arguments. (Ten tables of data and a figure are included; an appendix contains the thesis analysis and synthesis key.) (Author/PRA)
