Calls for Manuscripts
The Balanced Reading Instruction Special Interest Group (SIG) of the International Reading Association invites submissions of manuscripts for publication of the e-Journal of Balanced Reading Instruction. This semi-annual journal, which will now be published electronically, is a service to those interested in strengthening the teaching and learning of literacy for all learners, including learners for whom English is not a native language. Its mission is to improve the quality of literacy instruction, research, and scholarship and to disseminate the results of this work to the literacy education community.
Of particular interest are manuscripts that bridge the gap between literacy theory and practice and address current literacy research issues such as professional development for literacy teachers, the integration of literacy across the disciplines, teacher preparation, best practices in literacy research and instruction, improving the teaching of reading for English language learners, integration of technology in literacy instruction, and related issues.
