Unfulfilled expectations : home and school influences on literacy by Catherine E Snow( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and German and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a study of the ways in which home and school experiences affect the literacy achievement of a group of elementary school children from low-income families. Chapter 1 describes how the study differs from other literacy research. Chapter 2 describes the community where the research took place, some of the families studied, and the schools their children attended. Chapter 3 describes the data collection methods, the demographics of the subject sample, and the structure of quantitative analysis. Chapter 4 assesses the "family as educator" model for home influences. Chapter 5 assesses the resilient family model that was found to be related to children's writing. Chapter 6 presents the "parent-school partnership model" and reports on the many ways in which schools and families make contact with each other and how these contacts affect children's achievement. Chapter 7 focuses on reading comprehension, home and school determinants of reading comprehension status, and the relative importance of home versus school factors in predicting gains in reading comprehension. Chapter 8 summarizes the major findings and conclusions. Chapter 9 follows up on many of the children in the study 4 years later. Appendixes containing additional data and study instruments, acknowledgements, and 188 references are included. (Jb)

Reading for understanding : toward an R & D program in reading comprehension by Catherine E Snow( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In fall 1999, the Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) asked RAND to examine how OERI might improve the quality and relevance of the education research it funds. The RAND Reading Study Group (RRSG) was charged with developing a research framework to address the most pressing issues in literacy. RRSG focused on reading comprehension wherein the highest priorities for research are: (1) Instruction: How can we best promote the development of proficient reading and prevent reading comprehension difficulties? (2) Teacher preparation and professional development: How can we prepare teachers to deliver effective comprehension instruction? (3) Assessment: How can we develop an assessment system for reading comprehension that includes the design of valid and reliable measures of self-regulated, strategic reading that are sensitive to instructional interventions? RRSG concluded that the research infrastructure must: (a) obtain long-term funding that is sustained across administrations and political constituencies; (b) acquire intellectual leadership that endures over a substantial time frame and is insulated from political forces; (c) synthesize knowledge across the various research initiatives in systematic ways; (d) enlist a cadre of well-trained investigators; and, (e) fund research that is rigorous and of high quality

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Envision a cadre of leading scientists and practitioners working collaboratively on a highly focused program of education research that is tightly coupled with practice. Much of the research is carried out in school settings. Research influences educational practice, and the outcomes in practice inform further research efforts. The Strategic Education Research Partnership (SERP) is designed to make this vision a reality. It proposes a large-scale, coherent program of research and development that would put the problems of educational practice at its center, and focus on all stages necessary to influence practice. These include theory testing, the development and evaluation of instructional programs, the study of practice in context, and attention to taking innovations to scale

Board of Education decision nearly 50 years ago? What does research say about the reasons for successes and failures?
