Dr. Erica Bowers introduces Literacy Research, Practice and Evaluation

Aims and Scope

The international need for literacy research is as high as ever, as literacy skills serve as a foundation to learning. New research in literacy must address hot topics- some of which have limited amounts of previous research while maintaining high degrees of validity, reliability, and applicability. Literacy Research, Practice and Evaluation will address these concerns with vigorous research and ample instructional techniques.

Each volume will address a contemporary topic that is of particular importance such as comprehension, response to intervention, and assessment related to literacy education.

Upcoming Volume

Volume 9, Best Practice for Teaching Digital Literacies

Teacher education programs remain ill equipped to adequately prepare teaching professionals with the pedagogies to foster digital literacies. What is needed is a transformation of best practices towards teaching digital literacies so that teachers can meet the emerging needs of their students in today’s classrooms. This volume aims to provide a research-based practical framework for teacher education programs to develop K-12 students’ digital literacies, providing a set of best practices in teaching digital literacies that promotes access to research-based pedagogies for immediate implementation in their classrooms.

Praise for Volume 1

"Ortlieb and Cheek’s (Eds.), (2012) new book, Using Informative Assessment Toward Effective Literacy Instruction, is a practical guide for school-based and university-based educators to consult when looking for a book that explains the why’s of literacy assessment, the selection of assessments, and the connections between the use of literacy assessments and literacy instruction. Written in an accessible voice and style, this book is destined to become a desk reference for practicing educators around the nation and globe…a real keeper!"
