IRA Journal Series on Closing 'the Gap'
The July 2007 Reading Research Quarterly (International Reading Association [IRA]) focuses on closing the achievement gap, especially among adolescents.
The journal editors said while the series is "directed to researchers in anticipation of influencing future research agendas in literacy education, the suggestions and recommendations presented here also have implications for teachers, administrators, school board members, parents, and community organizations."
