Abstract:

New Edition

This volume, through a detailed treatment of the cognitive processes thatsupport reading, explains how reading really works. It offers a thoroughoverview of important and current research, including first language research,which is not often found in second language acquisition (SLA) publications.This book is a true example of applied linguistics; it makes well-definedlinkages between theory and practice, discussing the implications andapplications of second language reading theories on instructional practices. Itis a valuable resource and reference for action researchers, curriculumdesigners, teachers, administrators, and those interested in exploringtheoretical issues grounded in instructional contexts.
