De France, Kalee; Lennarz, Hannah; Kindt, Karlijn; Hollenstein, Tom – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2019

However, explicit examinations of the direction of this…

Lupo, Sarah M.; Strong, John Z.; Conradi Smith, Kristin – Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, 2019
Many teachers feel that students should not struggle with text; instead, they should read easier texts in order to learn from them and make adequate growth in reading.
