If you love theory then you will love this! And if you love reading theory then you may just die happy reading this little gem of a resource. Really, Tracey and Morrow know their stuff and they do such a great job creating this easy-to-read, easy-to-digest resource that's truly jam-packed with all kinds of reading-related knowledge. I know the cover looks boring and the title may not grab you but give it a chance and I promise you will get a lot out of this. It's practical and theoretical all in ...more
An informative introduction to theories of reading education and development. It provided a very good summary of a good number of theories. However, I felt that this volume attempted too much; it could have done with fewer subdivisions and greater detail. Serves to give a foundation, but anyone wanting a thorough understanding should be ready to seek more reading.
Read for exams. Good as a reminder of these different theories, but really too brief and unspecific to be of real help. Some speculation on how books targeted for children/teens might be written with these assumptions/theories in mind (particularly about the social aspects of reading when it comes to transmedia works).
A very informative examination of the history/development of the major reading theories. Tracey & Morrow are quite comprehensive in scope and depth with attention to each theory. Definitely an excellent resource for reading teachers.
