Baron, Naomi S. – Oxford University Press, 2021
We face constant choices about how we read. Educators must select classroom materials. College students weigh their textbook options. Parents make decisions for their children.

Boutorwick, T. J.; Macalister, John; Elgort, Irina – Reading in a Foreign Language, 2019
One avenue for developing second language (L2) vocabulary knowledge is through Extensive Reading (ER). ER can provide opportunities for incidental learning to occur. Class time is often too restricted for sufficient attention to deliberate learning (Hunt & Beglar, 2005) meaning ER is important for L2 vocabulary development. This article builds…

Milliner, Brett – JALT CALL Journal, 2017
Many research studies into Extensive reading (ER) have recognized its potential for improving language learners' reading proficiency and other language skills. However, some recent reviews of ER research (e.g., Waring & McLean 2015; Nakanishi, 2015; Mori, 2015) have argued for more refinement in research design so that ER research can be more…

Hiebert, Elfrieda H. – Literacy Research: Theory, Method, and Practice, 2017
Texts are a central part of reading. Yet our understandings of appropriate text features and distributions of text diets at different points in students' reading development are limited. The thesis of the essay is that, if the trajectory of struggling readers is to change, attention is needed to the features of texts and students' text diets,…

Bartolomeo-Maida, Maria – College Student Journal, 2016
Across disciplines, faculty members face a common challenge of finding methods to get their students to complete assigned course readings. It becomes an even larger task to develop strategies whereby students are also engaging in deep reading that promotes critical thinking. Reading positively impacts students on a number of variables, and when…

Allington, Richard L.; McCuiston, Kimberly; Billen, Monica – Reading Teacher, 2015
The CCSS framework indicates more difficult texts are to be used with students. However, the rationale for increasing text difficulty, decreasing text difficulty, is unsupported by the research that shows texts have been increasing in difficulty for at least 50 years. Oral reading accuracy is a traditional method of estimating text difficulty. For…

The Extensive Reading Foundation's bibliography now boasts over 530 articles with "Extensive Reading" in the title. About 35% of this rich and diverse body of papers were published in the past decade. A meta-review of this literature shows it is quite fragmented as evidenced by considerable variability in the conceptualization of…

Dewitz, Peter; Jones, Jennifer – Reading Teacher, 2013
When schools and teachers adopt core reading programs they can use them with fidelity or make intelligent decisions about the texts, lessons and components they select to use. The evidence suggests that these programs are not research-based documents, but rather compromises between what the research suggests about effective reading instruction and…
