    schema:description "This urgently needed book, an unparalleled collection of reading research information, provides definitive answers to these critical questions. Peggy McCardle and Vinita Chhabra, literacy experts from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, have partnered with 30 other well-respected figures in the field for a clear, comprehensive exploration of reading research-and the methods used to obtain it. The result is a one-of-a-kind resource that helps teachers and school administrators make sense of the controversy over evidence-based reading instruction, assess the quality of reading research, and make their own sound decisions about using research to shape instruction. The book's first section sets the stage for the rest of the book by outlining the importance of using research evidence to guide practice. Section II clarifies the definition of scientific research, examines three types of research studies (longitudinal research, meta-analysis, and clinical trials), and provides simple guidelines for determining the quality of a study. Section III takes a fresh look at the milestone National Reading Panel report on teaching children to read (April 2000) and introduces important additional findings on phonemic awareness and phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. In Section IV, the focus is on classroom issues educators face every day, such as professional development, student motivation, time allocation during literacy instruction, and interventions for students who struggle with reading. Section V explores neuro-imaging's role in revealing the relationship between brain function and reading ability. The final section turns the spotlight on educational policy-how it develops, how reading research has affected it, and where reading research is headed. Required reading for any educator, administrator, or parent committed to nurturing students' literacy, this landmark resource will help readers understand the value of scientifically based reading research, form educated answers to their complex questions, and shape reading instruction that leaves no child behind. As education professionals work to incorporate scientific, evidence-based practices into reading instruction, one thing is clear: sound decisions depend on a solid understanding of what the research says. This important new book brings together all the information readers need in a single volume. A masterful synthesis of information from the leading experts in the field, this volume addresses the substantive issues in the current controversy over reading instruction and the call for implementation of evidence-based reading instruction and accountability. Readers will learn how to apply research literature to practice and recognize common myths about scientific research; review the essential findings of the National Reading Panel report on Teaching Children to Read; examine the latest research on phonics and phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension; find research-based explorations of practical classroom issues; learn about current brain research and neuro-imaging and its influence on reading; discover how reading research informs educational policy; and get reliable information on current legislation. Required reading for all professionals whose work deals with reading instruction, this book gives readers the clear, detailed information they need about one of today's most critical topics in early education."@en ;
