This comprehensive professional resource and text is based on cutting-edge research. In each chapter, leading scholars provide an overview of a particular aspect of comprehension, offer best-practice instructional guidelines and policy recommendations, present key research questions still to be answered, and conclude with stimulating questions for individual study or discussion. Coverage includes such timely topics as differentiated instruction, technology and reading comprehension, teaching English language learners, and the implications of current neuroscientific findings.Is the booklet poorly written? Not at all. In fact, it is written just like any of myriad school-based texts in the content areas. When I first read this booklet before playing Deus Ex, I was sorely tempted to put the game on a shelf and forget about it.
