Berger, Allen, Ed.; Robinson, H. Alan, Ed.
Intended to help the secondary school classroom teacher make use of some of the current research related to reading instruction, this book contains reviews of the literature on the various aspects of secondary school reading.

The areas covered in the chapters are as follows: (1) reading achievement, (2) contexts of reading, (3) the reading process, (4) readers' strategies, (5) instructional strategies, (6) the nature and structure of text, (7) learning from text, (8) responses to literature, (9) responses to exposition, (10) organization and management of reading programs, (11) specialized services, and (12) computer literacy. The volume concludes with an epilogue on the new student, new teachers, and new demands in reading instruction. (HTH)
