Experts on a variety of text-related topics were asked to summarize existing research and then apply it to literacy development in an qidealq classroom.

Content coverage in this outstanding new book includes: *Literacy Processes--Part I examines basic reading processes (instruction, comprehension, word recognition, fluency, and motivation) as they relate to text features. *Forms of Texts--Part II examines the wide variety of text types (fiction, nonfiction, leveled, local, and electronic) that comprise an effective classroom literacy program. Discussions include the nature of these texts, their qualities and quantities, how they fit into an instructional plan, and how a teacher might assess their effectiveness. *Text Selection--Part III examines special issues (linguistic diversity and teachers as censors) related to the selection of classroom texts. *Personal Applications--The final, hands-on chapter synthesizes the book's ideas and offers practical tools (checklists and inventories) whereby teachers can self-assess the literacy environment of their own classrooms.
