If you are interested in a particular topic, but can't find it by browsing through the journals above, try searching one of these indexes:
1. Start with one journal (either Reading Teacher or Language Arts)
2. Be as specific as possible with your words (search for "read alouds" instead of "Vocabulary Development")
3. Look for articles that are both (1) relevant and (2) recent.
4. Read the abstract. If it's good, find & read the articles that appear in the References/Bibliography. If it's terrible, go back to the results list and try again.
5. If you don't like anything in the results list, try different words ("reading and preshoolers" or "reading and elementary students")
6. If you still don't see anything you like, try a different source using the same search words and process.
