Hello Reading and Writing Colleagues,
I want to call your attention to a new article entitled Fieldnotes: Reflections from an Adult Education Instructor on Research and Practice, an Instutute for Educational Sciences interview with Marcus Hall,
I believe Marcus Hall is a member of this group. He is asked about and, in my view, he accurately describes how practitioners, including those who are interested in research, often perceive researchers.
Are you a practitioner who values research? Does Marcus Hall's' description align with your experiences or not? How do you think researchers and practitioners work together to improve practice, for example in reading and writing?
Are you a researcher? What are your thoughts about how researchers and practitioners can work more closely together?
Are there specific comments in Marcus' interview that resonate with you?
Perhaps you, like Marcus, have benefited from the Adult Reading Components research that, I understand, influenced the development of the STAR training for adult education reading teachers. Are there lessons learned from this research-to-practice initiative that might help improve other areas of adult basic skills research to (and from) practice in adult basic skills education?
