The definitive reference on literacy research methods, this book serves as a key resource for researchers and as a text in graduate-level courses. Distinguished scholars clearly describe established and emerging methodologies, discuss the types of questions and claims for which each is best suited, identify standards of quality, and present exemplary studies that illustrate the approaches at their best. The book demonstrates how each mode of inquiry can yield unique insights into literacy learning and teaching and how the methods can work together to move the field forward. New to this edition: significantly expanded: covers 18 approaches instead of 13 incorporates the latest methodological advances and empirical findings chapters on content analysis, research in digital contexts, mixed methods, narrative approaches, and single-subject experimental design.
