The science of reading is the latest version of the reading wars brought to national attention by the popular press.

Mansoor, Asma; Bano, Muneera – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2021
We propose a decolonial pedagogy in the teaching of English Literature at the undergraduate level in postcolonial Pakistan.

Chen, Xiaobin; Meurers, Detmar – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
How can we identify authentic reading material that matches the learner's proficiency and fosters their language development?

Kuehnel, Adam – COABE Journal: The Resource for Adult Education, 2019
Finding materials that engage adult learners in meaningful ways is an irksome task, especially when the academic needs of a beginning literacy classroom are incredibly diverse.

Renandya, Willy A.; Krashen, Stephen; Jacobs, George M. – LEARN Journal: Language Education and Acquisition Research Network, 2018
Nobody disagrees that reading is good for students' language development. The more they read texts that they can understand, the more confident and adept they become.
