An eye-opening look at the latest research findings about the success of free voluntary reading in developing high levels of literacy. • Presents and organizes information in reprints of articles written by Stephen Krashen and published in journals worldwide • Addresses 83 generalizations about research that point to the success of FVR in developing literacy
Continuing the case for free voluntary reading set out in the book's 1993 first edition, this new, updated, and much-looked-for second edition explores new research done on the topic in the last ten years as well as looking anew at some of the original research reviewed. Krashen also explores research surrounding the role of school and public libraries and the research indicating the necessity of a print-rich environment that provides light reading (comics, teen romances, magazines) as well as the best in literature to assist in educating children to read with understanding and in second language acquisition. He looks at the research surrounding reading incentive/rewards programs and specifically at the research on AR (Accelerated Reader) and other electronic reading products.
Since the 1970's, Stephen Krashen's widely-known theory of second-language acquisition has had a huge impact on all areas of second -language research and teaching. An invaluable resource on the results of Krashen's many years of research and application, this book covers a wide range of topics, from the role of the input/comprehension hypothesis, the still-very-good idea of free voluntary reading, and current issues and contoversies about teaching grammar, to considerations of how it is we grow intellectually, or how me get "smart".
Among ordinary language learners, the acquisition of vocabulary has long been felt to be a crucial component of learning a foreign language. Second Language Vocabularly Acquisition has the goal of comparing the effectiveness of the direct learning of vocabulary (through memorization) and the indirect learning of vocabulary (through context); it encourages an appropriate balance between direct and indirect teaching of vocabulary in second language classrooms. The authors of these original articles present theoretical background, empirical research, and case studies focusing on a variety of modes of vocabulary acquisition. There is also an exploration of relevant pedagogical issues, including a description of practical strategies and techniques for teaching vocabulary.
