5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urban schools share the same concerns as other schools, especially regarding issues of pedagogy, curriculum, and assessment. How these issues are addressed in the urban school setting, however, presents unique challenges and opportunities for teaching and learning. Literacy Development of Students in Urban Schools: Research and Policy presents a comprehensive view of the issues and perspectives that affect the literacy education of urban students. Editors James Flood and Patricia L. Anders have organized this collection into three sections to show you how literacy development is complicated by various contexts: 1. Human Contexts of Literacy Development in Urban Schools: Poverty, School Violence, and Health Concerns 2. School Contexts of Literacy Development in Urban Schools: Curriculum, Students, and Teachers 3. Political and Organizational Contexts of Literacy Development in Urban Schools: Local and State Concerns Each section features chapters that synthesize the research on a specific topic, and chapters that respond to each synthesis to link the research to literacy instruction and programs. Included within these sections are possible implications for local, state, and national policy that will serve as starting points for conversations between educators and policymakers. The diverse perspectives from leading experts in the field will help you fully understand the knowledge base on literacy development in urban schools. This informative collection is a must-read for anyone preparing teachers to teach in urban schools, supervisors and administrators of urban schools, and policymakers

Promoting reading comprehension by James Flood( Book )

Each paper discusses critical issues in comprehension instruction and recommends strategies for effective teaching. The four papers in part one discuss what research reveals about teaching practices, propose a framework for conducting research, suggest the impact of the social context on instruction, and trace the history of teaching and testing reading comprehension. The six papers in part two discuss text-related issues in reading comprehension instruction, including the ways teachers intervene to improve student comprehension, the use of text organization to enhance students' understanding, and text structures found in popular television shows.
