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

15 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and German and held by 656 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 )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Fall 1999, the U.S. 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. The RRSG focused on the highest priorities for research in reading comprehension: How can we best promote the development of proficient reading and prevent reading comprehension difficulties? How can we prepare teachers to deliver effective comprehension instruction? 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? This book sets out the RRSG's framework and presents the group's conclusions about improving the research infrastructure for teaching reading comprehension."--Jacket

Talking to adults : the contribution of multiparty discourse to language aquisition by Shoshana Blum-Kulka( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the contribution of multiparty intergenerational talk in a variety of cultures to the development of children's communicative capacities.

One of the aims of the book is to demonstrate the degree of cultural diversity in
Is literacy enough? : pathways to academic success for adolescents( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While strong early literacy skills are important, they aren't enough to ensure a student's later reading and academic success. Four literacy experts investigate the reasons in this book - and demonstrate why schools need to go beyond K - 3 literacy to help adolescents reach their full potential. Following a group of children from low-income families from preschool through high school, the authors charted the students' outcomes using test data reflecting language and literacy skills; self-report data reflecting motivation and engagement in school; and interviews with students, teachers, and parents. Through the sobering discoveries made during this study, educators, administrators, researchers, and reading specialists will discover the critical influence of both protective factors and risk factors."--BOOK JACKET

Strategic education research partnership by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2007 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
What teachers need to know about language by Lily Wong Fillmore( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's teachers need access to a wide range of information to function in the classroom. They need a thorough understanding of how language figures in education, and for that reason they must receive systematic and intensive preparation in educational linguistics. A thorough grounding in linguistics would support teachers' undertakings overall, and in particular in teaching literacy skills and working with English language learners. If approached coherently, such preparation would also cover many of the desired teacher competencies, relating to skills in assessing children, in individualizing instruction, and in respecting diversity. This paper lays out a rationale for why current and prospective teachers need to know more about language, and what specific sorts of knowledge they need. Requisite knowledge about oral language, oral language used in formal and academic contexts, and written language is discussed. In the final section, courses are suggested that teacher preparation programs should offer to teacher candidates. This course list may also be seen as specifying aspects of an integrated, in-depth professional development program for inservice teachers. A glossary is appended. (Contains 53 references.) (Kft)
Achieving high educational standards for all : conference summary by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume summarizes a range of scientific perspectives on the important goal of achieving high educational standards for all students.

Board of Education decision nearly 50 years ago? What does research say about the reasons for successes and failures? What are some of the strategies and practices that hold the promise of producing continued improvements?
Science literacy : concepts, contexts, and consequences by Engineering, and Medicine (U.S.) National Academies of Sciences( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Science is a way of knowing about the world. At once a process, a product, and an institution, science enables people to both engage in the construction of new knowledge as well as use information to achieve desired ends. Access to science--whether using knowledge or creating it--necessitates some level of familiarity with the enterprise and practice of science: we refer to this as science literacy. Science literacy is desirable not only for individuals, but also for the health and well- being of communities and society. More than just basic knowledge of science facts, contemporary definitions of science literacy have expanded to include understandings of scientific processes and practices, familiarity with how science and scientists work, a capacity to weigh and evaluate the products of science, and an ability to engage in civic decisions about the value of science. Although science literacy has traditionally been seen as the responsibility of individuals, individuals are nested within communities that are nested within societies--and, as a result, individual science literacy is limited or enhanced by the circumstances of that nesting. Science Literacy studies the role of science literacy in public support of science. This report synthesizes the available research literature on science literacy, makes recommendations on the need to improve the understanding of science and scientific research in the United States, and considers the relationship between scientific literacy and support for and use of science and research
