Re-Claiming, Re-Inventing, and Re-Reforming a Field: The Future of College Reading
Stahl, Norman A.; Armstrong, Sonya L.
Journal of College Reading and Learning, v48 n1 p47-66 2018
At present, there is much discussion regarding the future of reading instruction at the postsecondary level. In order to contemplate the future of the field of college reading, however, we must first consider the field's history, and particularly the last several decades. The purpose of this manuscript is to explore both the external and internal catalysts over the most recent decades that have led to what we call "the fall of the field of college reading." After discussing "the fall," we move on to anticipate the future of college reading by providing a solutions-oriented discussion that explores possibilities to re-claim, re-invent, and re-reform a once-vital and still very much-needed field.
