Reading Comprehension Research: A Selected Review. Technical Report No. 448.
Anthony, Helene M.; And Others
This research review is an examination of representative studies on the nature of the reading process and of various instructional methods in reading deemed to be of interest to classroom teachers of reading. The review provides both a theoretical perspective and related empirical evidence to guide instructional practice and discusses the ways in which readers, text, and context interest and influence children's comprehension of text. The review begins with a brief historical overview of reading research, which provides a framework for discussing studies related to the characteristics of readers, text, and the social context. One figure is included, and 144 references are appended. (Author/MS)
