New Directions in Reading Instruction--Revised.
Hinson, Bess, Ed.
The gains in knowledge about the nature of reading and how to most effectively teach it come from cognitive research. This booklet (in the form of a flipchart) synthesizes and summarizes much of the current research on effective instruction for improved literacy and greater student achievement. The booklet, a revised edition of "New Directions in Reading Instruction" (1988), contains almost all the topics in the original edition, as well as several new topics such as assessment, critical literacy, and instructional technology. The booklet is organized with a logical progression of topics divided into four sections: What Students Know; What Students Do; What Teachers Know; and What Teachers Do. The learning strategies offered in the booklet are designed to help educators model and demonstrate good reading and learning practices that help students learn more effectively. (Contains 41 references.) (NKA)
