“Want to know about the latest developments in comprehension instruction? This volume will tell you. The book reviews theory, research, and instructional practices. It includes current thinking about narrative and informational texts, linked to the CCSS, and examines the evolving research on new literacies and multimodal literacies. A solid read for those seeking advanced knowledge about comprehension and comprehension instruction in the 21st century.”

—Janice A. Dole, PhD, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Utah


“One of my favorite comprehension books of all time. The third edition continues the tradition of excellence, attesting to comprehension as a vast and multifaceted topic. There’s something for everyone in this book, with chapters exploring various grade levels, genres, and topics. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter are especially useful to spark productive conversations regarding how to best teach comprehension in all its complexity.”

—Donna Lamkin, MS, CAS, Literacy Coordinator, Capital Region Board of Cooperative Educational Services, Special Education Division, Albany, New York


“I know of no other text that explores so many realms of reading comprehension—assessment, remediation, policy implications, differentiation for diverse populations, and best practices in multiple contexts and multiple genres. I will eagerly share this book with my doctoral students as they consume and produce research in the area of reading comprehension. Not only do the contributors to the third edition present the most up-to-date research, but they also contribute thoughtfully to a multidisciplinary understanding of what comprehension entails in today’s classrooms.”

—Molly Ness, PhD, Division of Curriculum and Teaching, Fordham University Graduate School of Education


“I love this book! It is an excellent resource for teachers and teacher educators. The third edition addresses significant changes in the field. I especially appreciate the connections to the CCSS. Another strength is the book's emphasis on blending reading, writing, listening, and speaking in instruction. Anyone who is serious about teaching reading in today’s classrooms will find this volume a 'must have.'”

—John Scovill, MEd, staff developer, Washington County (Utah) School District
