Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Nancy Nelson Spivey: This symposium on the usefulness of literacy research had its inception in a comment by Alan C. Purves that educational research in the English language arts has reached a dead end. Purves graciously agreed to elaborate on his comment and to provide the opening remarks for a discussion of the topic. Responding to his argument are David Bloome, University of Massachusetts at Amherst; Joanne M. Golden, University of Delaware; Carol D. Lee, Northwestern University; Susan Hynds, Syracuse University; Michael Pressley, SUNY/ Albany; and Timothy Shanahan, University of Illinois, Chicago.
