This revision of the classical practical handbook A Short Course in Teaching Reading Skills combines reading theory with practical classroom application. An invaluable resource to the reading teacher, teacher-in-training, or administrator who wants to stress quality reading comprehension instruction, the principles apply to teenage through adult learnerers who already have basic decoding skills. Features Part I defines the reading process, reviews recent research, and models an ESL/EFL reading course. Part II outlines why and how to set up an extensive reading program. Part III describes and models how to teach effective reading skills. Part III also includes intensive reading lessons that enable students to strategically apply reading skills. Appendices include high frequency word lists and common collocations in academic texts.
