As part of evidence-based practice, families and practitioners can turn to the best available research to answer questions and help solve practice dilemmas. In order to provide information on the best available research on a particular practice, CONNECT summarizes an existing research synthesis when available. For this module, CONNECT uses an existing research synthesis that directly addresses the use and effectiveness of dialogic reading with children enrolled in early care and education settings.
Following the instructions on Activity 6.3a, learn about the effectiveness research on dialogic reading in Handout 6.1: Research Summary on Dialogic Reading, a research synthesis prepared by the U.S. Department of Education What Works Clearinghouse. Also listen as Dr. Christopher Lonigan talks about research on dialogic reading.
