The Power of Reading
Insights From the ResearchBook
"The first edition argued 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.
