Reading may seem straightforward, but within the language learning and teaching environment there are a host of competing theories which examine the ways in which reading can be taught effectively. This title considers all of those most prevalent and active theories and builds connections from research on reading, to sound instructional practices and suggests research possibilities. Offering an overview of reading theory, it summarises the main ideas and issues in first and second language contexts and covers key research studies.

"This book functions as an excellent introduction to current theory on reading processing with a very welcomed emphasis on pedagogical application. Instead of the typical either-or (theory or practice) dilemma common to texts on reading research, the authors manage to effectively marry the two."
