Read a Q&A with featured author, Diane H. Tracey!
“The third edition of this text raises the bar. The authors have captured our field's historical and present-day understanding of the behavioral, cognitive, and sociocultural influences on reading development. Content on neuroscience represents the leading edge of reading research and is not to be missed. This indispensable book belongs on the desk of every reading researcher and in the collection of every graduate student of reading.”

—Nancy Frey, PhD, Professor of Educational Leadership, San Diego State University


“The balance of theoretical explanations, research ideas, classroom applications, and teacher anecdotes makes this an ideal text for introductory graduate courses in literacy research and methods. Adding to the robust overview of theories and models, new chapters in the third edition examine the critical yet often hidden roles of physiology and affect in literacy learning and achievement. The addition of Critical Race Theory and Multiliteracies Theory to the chapter on social learning theories also provides essential perspectives.”

—Janice F. Almasi, PhD, Carol Lee Robertson Endowed Professor of Literacy Education, University of Kentucky


“The third edition of Lenses on Reading invites teachers to deepen their understanding of theories and models of reading in order to gain perspective and ground their work. What is unique about this text is the way the authors provide clear and insightful implications for practice and research. I have used prior editions in graduate classes for over a decade, and my students consistently give the text high marks for helping them understand why theory is so important and how it shapes our practices. I absolutely love this book and think it has had a significant impact on our field.”

—Linda B. Gambrell, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Education, Clemson University
