Now in a revised and updated fourth edition incorporating current advances in research and instructional practices, this well-established text accessibly introduces prominent theories and models related to reading. The book is organized chronologically, from classical approaches to contemporary cognitive, social learning, physiological, and affective perspectives. It emphasizes that the more lenses educators possess for examining reading processes, the better equipped they will be to understand and facilitate children's literacy development. Pedagogical features include framing and discussion questions, learning activities, teacher anecdotes, and examples of how each model is applied in classroom practice and research.
