Summary

Despite efforts by educators and policymakers during the past several decades, certain groups of students -- primarily African American students, English language learners, and students from low-income homes -- continue to underperform on commonly used measures of academic achievement. Addressing critical issues related to pre-adolescent and adolescent literacy learners with a focus on closing the achievement gap, this valuable resource is essential reading for those involved in teaching and setting policy for literacy education in grades 4 through 12.
