Guthrie, John T., Ed.
Reflecting the interdisciplinary emphasis that reading comprehension has received during the past decade, the articles in this volume deal with both the processes involved in reading and the instructional practices used in teaching it. The six articles devoted to reading processes deal specifically with the following topics: schemata, comprehension of text structures, vocabulary knowledge, the social context of learning to read, and social-psychological perceptions and reading comprehension. The six articles concerning instructional practices report on instructional variables in reading comprehension, academic learning time and reading achievement, the role of reading in bilingual contexts, characteristics of exemplary reading programs, overcoming educational disadvantages, and recognizing reading comprehension programs.
