Overview

The Handbook of College Reading and Study Strategy Research is the most comprehensive and up-to-date source available for college reading and study strategy practitioners and administrators. In this thorough and systematic examination of theory, research, and practice, college reading teachers will find information to make better instructional decisions, administrators will find justification for programmatic implementations, and professors will find in one book both theory and practice to better prepare graduate students to understand the parameters and issues of this field.

No other book currently provides a comprehensive collection of information, though college reading and study strategy programs continue to expand and can be found in four-year colleges, universities, community/junior colleges, medical schools, technical schools, and other postsecondary institutions around the world. The Handbook is an essential resource for professionals, researchers, and students as they continue to study, research, learn, and share more about college reading and study strategy issues and instruction.
