Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have found Literacy for All to be an ideal text for my course in Supervision in Reading. The book examines literacy from many angles. The chapters, from experts in the field, are research-based but eminently readable."—Paul Schafer, EdD, St. Bonaventure University

"Literacy for All is an important resource for anyone interested in an overview of how reading research has evolved, and an intelligent speculation about where it might be headed. Each chapter is accessible, providing lively examples illustrating the theoretical, educational, and policy issues presented. This volume addresses five key areas of literacy research: learning to read, text comprehension, composition, assessment practices, and teacher education. The title refers to an ambitious goal. The book is distinguished by the fact that its contributors are among those who have significantly advanced the development of a knowledge base supporting this goal." —Annemarie Sullivan Palincsar, PhD, Walgreen Professor of Reading and Literacy, University of Michigan

"A comprehensive representation of a topical terrain that is often shaped by the winds of opinions and politics. The subjects of acquisition of reading, reform in literacy education, the content of reading instruction, and professional development of all those involved in literacy education are worthy of consideration. This timely text stimulates in-depth reflection about what is best for the literacy development and growth of children." —William H. Rupley, PhD, Professor of Reading, Department of Educational Curriculum and Instruction, College of Education, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX
