Improving Comprehension for Middle and High School Students


The focus of this Springer Literacy Edition is to provide the most current research regarding instruction in the area of comprehension for middle and high school students. Each author of the first four chapters will focus on a core subject area in middle and high school and discuss the current research along with instructional implications for this particular population. Core subject areas are defined as social studies/history, science, English language arts, and mathematics. Three additional chapters on special education, English language learners, and assessment will describe the current practices to ensure academic achievement remains the central focus for the all learners.
