"An important compendium of first-class information. It is a valuable instructional guide at a time when classroom teachers are under unprecedented pressure for the nationwide move to standard-based reform and high stakes testing. Rather than continuing the myth of the 'good old days' of reading instruction, this book ensures that comprehension will become an integral part of the nation's literacy agenda." - from the Foreword by Gerald G. Duffy, professor emeritus, Michigan State University "Educators interested in an up-to-date account of comprehension research will appreciate the many and varied chapters in Improving Comprehension Instruction." - Jane Osborn, Education Consultant, University of Illinois "A rich resource for all interested in improving comprehension instruction. The specific 'close-ups' of good illustrative lessons and programs provided by the authors enable us to think deeply about instruction and visualize the possible. Taken together the chapters stimulate reflection about both the commonalities and differences in these research-based applications!" - Donna Ogle, past president, the International Reading AssociationBlock, Cathy Collins is the author of 'Improving Comprehension Instruction Rethinking Research, Theory, and Classroom Practice', published 2002 under ISBN 9780787963095 and ISBN 0787963097.
