From the Back Cover:

As the reading profession faces the challenge of high-stakes testing and standards-based curricula, it is essential that administrators, teachers, and teacher educators who plan and implement reading programs in urban settings have a professional development resource that speaks directly to urban education and diversity. This collection is that resource, showing what works—or what has the promise of working—in urban settings.

This collection of research-based articles is framed around the International Reading Association position statement Making a Difference Means Making It Different: Honoring Children's Rights to Excellent Reading Instruction, which presents 10 "literacy rights" of every child, outlining what children need to become competent readers and writers. The volume includes two or three amides pertaining to each of the 10 rights, an annotated bibliography of related IRA books and amides published since 1990, and a list of websites that provide additional information about promising practices in urban reading instruction.

Promising Practices for Urban Reading Instruction is an important step in identifying promising practices for making children's literacy rights a reality and provides direction about the next steps for educators involved in urban reading instruction.
