img_1b.jpgThe goal of research serves:

  • To develop a sound conceptual, interdisciplinary research base for guiding practice and policy.

  • To identify research issues pretinent to family literacy.  This has resulted in a Goodling Institute for Research in Family Literacy Research Agenda. This agenda brings focus to the work of the Goodling Institute and guides research nationally. The agenda was updated in 2012 to reflect changes to family literacy.

  • To provide a centralized link for research in family literacy, including research briefs, current research, research documents and reports, and presented papers. The Goodling Institute conducts and compiles research studies that move the field of family literacy forward.  This research includes not only studies funded by the Goodling Institute but also other research submitted from the field.

  • To review diverse publications resulting in an Annotated Bibliography intended to advance the work of all those involved with family literacy. The annotated bibliography is a resource that aggregates the current research and writings on practices and theory directly affecting and relating to family literacy programs and practices.  (The annotated bibliography has new search features for ease of use).

  • To support graduate students through assistantships to focus on family literacy research. The support encourages development of researchers in family literacy.
