Learning to Read in American Schools examines critical research that offers direct implications for the design and/or evaluation of text materials used in our schools today. In so doing, it addresses issues regarding the quality of text materials, and contains specific recommendations for the improvement of reading comprehension and instruction. Timely, clearly written, and jargon-free, this text is an essential handbook for school administrators, reading specialists, teachers in professional development programs, trainers of teachers, and curriculum developers. It should have a profound impact on how reading is taught in American schools.
