The sixth edition of this landmark reference represents classic and trend-setting scholarship that is among the best in the field.

Twenty percent of the chapters from previous editions have been revised by their authors to reflect current research and instructional developments in the field. Questions for Reflection accompany each chapter to assist readers in transforming their current knowledge base through discussion and deeper thinking about theory, research, and instruction.In this updated volume, you’ll findAn expanded range of research designs and their applications to both basic and applied researchReading processes and literacy practices studied through cognitive, sociocultural, critical, transactional, and poststructural theorizingA framework for understanding and critiquing a comprehensive body of research literature spanning over five decadesConnections among a wide range of literacy theories and their as­sociated modelsA jump-off point for generating new research studies and models that inform instructional decision making
