The Achievement Gap in Reading PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Achievement Gap in Reading free pdf In this volume prominent scholars, experts in their respective fields and highly skilled in the research they conduct, address educational and reading research from varied perspectives and share, in their learned opinion and based on research, what it will take to close the achievement gap-with specific attention to reading. The contributors bring valuable theoretical frameworks and in-depth analytical approaches to interpretation of data. The contributors examine factors that contribute to student achievement inside-the-school but which are also heavily influenced by out-of-school factors-such as poverty and economics, ethnicity and culture, family and community stratifications, and approaches to measurement of achievement. These out-of-school factors present possibilities for new policies and practice. The overarching theme is that achievement gaps in reading are complex and that multiple perspectives are necessary to address the problem. The achievement gap is redefined as a level at which all groups can compete economically in our society and have the literacy tools and habits needed for a good life. The breadth and depth of the perspectives and content is unique. This conceptualization of the achievement gap is a significant contribution to the field.
