Each paper discusses critical issues in comprehension instruction and recommends strategies for effective teaching. The four papers in part one discuss what research reveals about teaching practices, propose a framework for conducting research, suggest the impact of the social context on instruction, and trace the history of teaching and testing reading comprehension. The six papers in part two discuss text-related issues in reading comprehension instruction, including the ways teachers intervene to improve student comprehension, the use of text organization to enhance students' understanding, and text structures found in popular television shows.
