Preview

Literacy development and language acquisition are processes that are studied within several overlapping fields: education, special education, educational psychology, communication disorders, and, more broadly, psychology. Understanding these processes is relevant to researchers, educators, school leaders, reading specialists, school psychologists, and, of course, families. The citations that have been chosen for this article were selected to lead users to important sources of information that are highly relevant to this field and deliberately include some texts that are more researcher oriented and others that will aid practitioners in applying research in classrooms and other instructional settings. The first few sections provide a general overview of the field of literacy and language acquisition, including textbooks, data sets, and theoretical frameworks. The next sections focus on the relationships among various components of the reading process and how to teach these components. Finally, issues related to selecting texts for early reading instruction, assessment, and the classroom environment are covered.
