Article excerpt

The Summer 2011 issue of School Psychology Forum is available for download at http://www.nasp online.org/publications/spf/spfissues. aspx. There are three excellent articles in this general issue covering topics such as social justice, professional knowledge of Blueprint III, and first grade Tier 1 reading interventions. Also available are interviews with authors and other supplementary materials for research-to-practice use. I would also welcome comments on our new cover design and article layout (or any aspect of the journal) at school psychforum@gmail.com.

As the editor of the NASP online journal, I would like to recommend that members read articles on their computer rather than print them. The obvious reasons are that not printing saves paper, printer ink, and storage of printed articles. But also print size, color, and contrast can be adjusted for those of us whose close vision is not what it was and who need a bit of help. Adobe readers also allow for highlighting, markups, and several others reader tools. Then reader comments can easily be saved for future reference. Reduce waste, reduce eye fatigue, and improve information flow.
