Read a Q&A with featured author, Diane H. Tracey!
“Tracey and Morrow present a cogent, coherent, historically informed analysis of literacy theories. They have woven diverse theoretical perspectives on reading—from behaviorism to digital literacy—into a 'must-have' text for master’s- and doctoral-level courses. The fourth edition's inclusion of links to related videos is invaluable. What a joyous romp Tracey and Morrow lead us on!”

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

“I have consistently used this text in my doctoral seminar class, and it has proven to be an invaluable asset. Students praise the text for its rich, up-to-date exploration of reading theories and models and its succinct summaries of practical implications for instruction and research. Tailored for graduate courses and reading research seminars, the fourth edition introduces a new chapter on digital literacy and offers crucial updates on topics like direct/explicit instruction, critical literacy theory, and social equity. A new appendix with YouTube video links enhances the learning experience.”

—Patricia A. Edwards, PhD, University Distinguished Professor of Language and Literacy, Michigan State University

“The book provides opportunities for graduate students to reflect on their own students’ strengths and areas of need through various lenses. In the fourth edition, a new chapter on digital literacy reminds us that teaching and learning are continually transforming. The organization of the book around theories and models, research applications, classroom vignettes, discussion questions, and activities serves to scaffold graduate students as they learn and apply the theoretical lenses to their unique teaching environments. This text is perfect for a Psychology of Reading course or any course in which students seek to broadly understand literacy development.”

—Susan L. Massey, PhD, Director, Master of Education Program, Upper Iowa University

“If you are a beginning educator wondering about the various theories and models that underpin the instructional moves you make when teaching students to read—or an experienced teacher or researcher reexamining your instructional beliefs—the fourth edition of this book is your ideal mirror for reflection. This terrific text is straightforward, powerful, engaging, and easy to read.”
