Adult literacy in America : a first look at the results of the National Adult Literacy Survey by Irwin S Kirsch( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Adult Literacy Survey profiled the literacy of U.S. adults based on their performance on tasks reflecting materials and demands of daily life. Data were gathered through interviews with a random sample of 13,600 people over 16, a survey of 1,000 adults in each of 12 states, and interviews with 1,100 prison inmates, making a total of 26,000 adults surveyed. Participants completed a series of literacy tasks and received proficiency scores on three scales measuring prose, document, and quantitative literacy. They were categorized in five levels. Major findings were as follows: (1) 40-44 million adults were at the lowest level, of whom 25% were immigrants, 62% did not complete high school, and 19% had visual difficulties; (2) 50 million at level 2 had difficulty with higher reading and problem-solving skills; (3) most at levels 1-2 rated their reading/writing as well or very well--they could meet most needs with limited skills; (4) 61 million were at level 3, 34-40 million at levels 4-5; (5) young adults were less proficient than those surveyed in 1985; (6) older adults were more likely to have limited skills; (7) many minorities and prison inmates were more likely to be at levels 1-2, due to fewer years of schooling or limited English proficiency; (8) higher levels correlated with being employed, working more weeks, and having higher wages; and (9) 41-44% of level 1 and 4-8% of levels 4-5 were in poverty. (Appendices include definitions and 31 data tables. Document includes 13 other tables and 26 figures.) (SK)

Helping your child succeed in school : with activities for children aged 5 through 11 by Dorothy Rich( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parents can play a key role in attaining the United States' National Education Goals, a main component of which is that all children will be ready to learn when they enter school. This guide for parents provides basic information on factors related to school success and a series of activities that parents can do with their children, ages 5 through 11, to help them succeed in school. Part 1 of the guide serves as an introduction. Part 2, "The Basics," addresses learning at home, in the community, and at school, and emphasizes the importance of starting early, communicating with children, handling children's homework, connecting with the community, and being involved at school. How children learn and what children learn from parents are also addressed. The importance of both active and quiet learning, limiting television viewing, and encouraging active learning are emphasized. The guide then lists important messages for parents to convey to their children about school success: (1) sharing one's own experiences and goals; (2) establishing realistic, consistent family rules; and (3) encouraging children to think about the future. Part 3 of the guide, "Activities," comprises the bulk of the guide, and contains parent-child activities arranged by approximate child age levels. Each activity lists its goal, benefits to children, materials needed, and step-by-step instructions. Part 4 of the guide, "Parents and the Schools," explains when parents should talk with teachers, gives recommendations for parent-teacher conferences, and makes suggestions for volunteering

Reading for understanding : toward an R & D program in reading comprehension by Catherine E Snow( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In fall 1999, the 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. RRSG focused on reading comprehension wherein the highest priorities for research are: (1) Instruction: How can we best promote the development of proficient reading and prevent reading comprehension difficulties? (2) Teacher preparation and professional development: How can we prepare teachers to deliver effective comprehension instruction? (3) Assessment: 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? RRSG concluded that the research infrastructure must: (a) obtain long-term funding that is sustained across administrations and political constituencies; (b) acquire intellectual leadership that endures over a substantial time frame and is insulated from political forces; (c) synthesize knowledge across the various research initiatives in systematic ways; (d) enlist a cadre of well-trained investigators; and, (e) fund research that is rigorous and of high quality

The third and longest section of the booklet describes a variety of suggested activities grouped by age: birth to 1 year; 1 to 2 years; 2 to 3 years; 3 to 4 years; and 4 to 5 years; each group begins with a set of age-appropriate tips and suggestions under the headings, "What to do, ""What to expect," and"What they need." Activities for infants focus on developing trust and helping babies understand their world by means of touch and sight. Activities for 1- to 2-year-old children involve shopping, sock and finger puppets, and ways to develop motor skills. Activities for 2- to 3-year-olds include reading aloud, making music, and playing with dough. The part for 3- to 4-year-olds offers popular recipes, suggests art activities, and describes ways to turn chores into learning games. Activities that introduce hands-on mathematics and develop language skills are described in the part for 4- to 5-year-olds, which also offers advice on teaching children to get along with others. The fourth and last section of the booklet offers advice on what parents can do to make school seem a friendlier place both for the parents and for the child who is about to enter it for the first time. Finally, a set of appendices offers guidelines for forming good television habits and choosing child care, provides a ready-for-school checklist, suggests community resources, and lists books for both parents and preschoolers.
