This practical book grows out of a recent report written by the RAND Reading Study Group (RRSG), which proposed a national research agenda in the area of reading comprehension. Here, RRSG members have expanded on their findings and translated them into clear recommendations to inform practice. Teachers gain the latest knowledge about how students learn to comprehend texts and what can be done to improve the quality of instruction in this essential domain. From leading literacy scholars, the book explains research-based ways to:

*Plan effective instruction for students at all grade levels
*Meet the comprehension needs of English-language learners
*Promote adolescents' comprehension of subject-area texts
*Understand the complexities of comprehension assessment
*Get optimal benefits from instructional technologies
*And much more!
