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 10, The Gradual Release of Responsibility in Literacy Research and Practice

In the last 35 years, the gradual release of responsibility model of instruction has become synonymous with some of the most effective approaches to teach both skills and content to students of all ages. While the GRR model is well known throughout K-12 classrooms, what these implementations look like has never appeared in one text to showcase its potential. This text serves as the go-to resource for learning more about the gradual release of responsibility model as related to theory, research, and practice.  Featured authors discuss how the GRR model developed and has been applied, how the GRR model benefits learners and teachers, and how the GRR model can be used in research and practice for years to come.

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!"
