Summary
  • "The Power of Reading in its original edition offered groundbreaking research that fundamentally altered the way educators and language researchers approach literacy. It has become the foundation for the argument that free voluntary reading (FVR) is the most effective toll available for increasing literacy. Whether the medium is graphic novels, teen romances, the sports page, or literature, it is the act of reading itself that is the key to linguistic improvement. This long-awaited second edition promises to be no less influential. Extensively revised and updated, Dr. Stephen D. Krashen's cumulation of years of meticulous research from many different countries offers compelling evidence for his arguments. Krashen includes the latest research and trends on the topic while also revisiting the research presented in the first edition.
  • Some of the topics he explores include the research surrounding second language acquisition, reading rewards and incentives programs, and some of today's popular electronic reading products." "Organized in the same accessible style as the original, with helpful marginal notes illuminating key points, Krashen's findings will be of interest to language and linguistics researchers and professionals, and should be read by every educator, administrator, and parent concerned with equipping children to best navigate their worlds."--BOOK JACKET.
