Awarded by International Reading Association
To recognize an outstanding empirical study that was published in English in a refereed journal that specifically reports on an investigation of aspects of literary acquisition such as phonemic awareness, the alphabetic principle, bilingualism, home influences on literacy development or cross-cultural studies of beginning reading.
Articles must have been published in a refereed journal within the past 18 months and may be submitted by the author or anyone else. Empirical studies involve the collection of original data from direct experimentation or observation, and articles that develop theory without data, secondary reviews of the literature or descriptions of the theory are not eligible for this competition.
