This revision of the classical practical handbook A Short Course in Teaching Reading Skills combines reading theory with practical classroom application. An invaluable resource to the reading teacher, teacher-in-training, or administrator who wants to stress quality reading comprehension instruction, the principles apply to teenage through adult learnerers who already have basic decoding skills.
