From the contributors
The contributors to this Focus area thank Timothy Shanahan, IRA president 2006–07, for envisioning this resource and ensuring its transformation from idea to reality. Those interested in the history of reading instruction, literacy, and the book owe him a debt of gratitude.
We are presenting one bibliography on “Selected Topics in the History of Reading and Writing” and another on “Persons Who Influenced Reading Instruction in Colonial America and the United States.” We hope to expand both later. Please e-mail suggestions and comments to Jennifer Monaghan.
