Overview

This scientific report summarizes some of the current literature on adolescent literacy research and practice. The report was produced for an interagency working group, composed of representatives from the National Institute for Literacy, the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Adult and Vocational Education, and the NICHD.

The goal of this report is to help address middle and high school classroom teachers’, administrators’, and parents’ immediate need for basic information about how to build adolescents’ reading and writing skills. The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the U.S. Department of Education, and other organizations currently sponsor long-term research studies that ultimately will add to our knowledge of adolescent literacy. In the meantime, however, the need for information to use in the classroom must be met.
This report summarizes some of the current literature on adolescent literacy research and practice. It is not a research synthesis or a literature review; such an effort is well beyond the scope of this document. Rather the report suggests some methods of building adolescent reading and writing skills in the classroom. To the extent possible, recommendations are evidence-based.
