Description

The ultimate aim of reading is not the process but to understand what we read and comprehension can take place at many different levels. There has been an increasing emphasis on the importance of reading comprehension in recent years but despite this there is very little written on this vital topic accessible to trainee and practicing teachers.

The Handbook of Reading Comprehension presents an overview of recent findings on reading comprehension and comprehension problems in children. It provides a detailed examination of the characteristics of children who have reading comprehension difficulties, and examines ways in which comprehension can be supported and improved. It is accessibly written for students and professionals with no previous background in the psychology of reading or reading problems.

This indispensable handbook asks the question ‘what is comprehension?’ The authors consider comprehension of different units of language: understanding single words, sentences, and connected prose and outline what readers (and listeners) have to do to successfully understand an extended text. This book also considers comprehension for different purposes, in particular reading for pleasure and reading to learn and explores how reader characteristics such as interest and motivation can influence the comprehension process.

Different skills contribute to successful reading comprehension. These include word reading ability, vocabulary knowledge, syntactic skills, memory, and discourse level skills such as the ability to make inferences, knowledge about text structure, and metacognitive skills. The authors discuss how each one contributes to the development of reading comprehension skill and how the development of these skills (or their precursors) in pre-readers, provides the foundation for reading comprehension development.

Areas covered include:-

  • Word reading and comprehension
  • Development of comprehension skills
  • Comprehension difficulties
  • Assessment
  • Teaching for improvement

Throughout the text successful experimental and classroom based interventions will be highlighted, practical tips for teachers and summary boxes detailing key points and explaining technical terms will be included in each chapter

This is a helpful, up-to-date review and explanation of research on reading comprehension that is easy to understand.

Too often when researchers write books, they are written for other researchers and it is difficult for teachers, school administrators, and parents to wade through the technical information to get to the "good stuff." This is a rare and welcome exception. These three authors have been leaders in the field of reading comprehension research for decades. This volume provides the fruits of those efforts in an easy-to-read fashion. It should be read by all those who teach our children to read. Highly recommended!

I started this from the point that reading and writing are the weaker skills amongst my Cambodian students and what can I do to help them improve in reading. I thought this gives a very good overview of the process of reading, word decoding and reading comprehension, and then the components of reading comprehension. For those components of reading comprehension it then detailed problems which might arise for students and measures to deal with them. It was very thought provoking about teaching reading and very practical in things suggested to do with students. I would recommend this a sort very readable, yet thought provoking and practical book on the practice of teaching reading.
