Children's Prose Comprehension: Research and Practice.
Santa, Carol Minnick, Ed.; Hayes, Bernard L., Ed.
Designed to provide an exchange of ideas about children's reading comprehension, this book has gathered insights and perspectives from both educators and psychologists concerning the comprehension process. The first section of the book consists of three chapters devoted to literature reviews, each dealing with an aspect of comprehension. Specific areas covered in the reviews are: basic research on the development of prose comprehension, experimental manipulations designed to promote comprehension, and successful instructional materials and practices used for teaching children to comprehend. The second section of the book contains three discussant chapters that provide critical commentary on the literature reviews. The book concludes with a summary chapter and a comprehensive listing of references. (FL)
