The issues presented include different models of strategy instruction and how they can be tailored according to context and the learners’ age and attainment level. The collection will be an important resource for researchers in the field, both for its critical perspectives and its guidance on collaborating with teachers to design interventions to implement strategy instruction. It also identifies key areas for research, including the teaching of less studied groups of strategies such as grammar and affective strategies. The book will prove equally valuable to language teachers through the provision of detailed teaching materials and tasks. Those engaged in professional development, whether pre- or in-service teacher education, will find a wealth of concrete ideas for sessions, courses and assignments.

Reading Comprehension Strategy Instruction In Irish Primary School Classrooms

This study investigated the current practice, understandings and professional development needs of Irish primary school teachers in relation to reading comprehension strategy instruction. In Phase One of the study, a questionnaire was distributed to a sample of four hundred Irish primary teachers. These findings were then extended and enriched through the use of qualitative interviews. The study also sought to address teachers{u2019} professional development needs. Therefore in Phase Two of the study, the data gathered in phase one was combined with recommendations from the literature in order to create a professional development programme for a case study school. The data gathered in Phase One revealed that reading instruction in Irish classrooms tended to be un-balanced, focussing on decoding skills in the junior and learning support classrooms and on an affective approach to reading in the senior classes. These findings indicate a {u2018}bottom-up{u2019} approach to reading instruction that advocates a {u2018}simple view{u2019} of reading, whereby decoding results in linguistic comprehension. At all class levels, reading comprehension remained secondary to decoding skills and reading for enjoyment. When it formed part of instruction it was generally approached in an implicit manner and developed through practice, questioning and osmosis. The findings also indicated that Irish teachers were generally dissatisfied with the current in-service and pre-service provision in relation to reading instruction and felt that they would benefit from the opportunity to participate in a professional development course on reading comprehension strategy instruction (CSI). The professional development programme used in the case study was school-based, taking place in the school building and including the majority of staff members of the case study school. It consisted of training sessions, discussion groups and a planning session spanning the full academic year. Curriculum implementation was aided and encouraged through whole school participation, opportunities for collaboration and discussion, on-going support, active engagement with new methodologies and {u2018}real-time{u2019} learning. The school-based approach also enabled whole school planning in developing a context-based spiral curriculum for comprehension instruction. The study also revealed many positive effects in relation to the implementation of CSI in Irish classrooms including an apparent increase in pupil motivation and engagement in reading which indicates that this topic warrants further consideration in future professional development plans.

Revision Revisited LINDA ALLAL* & LUCILE CHANQUOY** *University ofGeneva, SWitzerland, **UniversityofNantes, France Revision is a fundamental component of the writing process. So fundamental that for some specialists writing is largely a matter of revising, or as Murray (1978) stated, "Writing is rewriting..." (p. 85). Experience with writing does not, however, automatically translate into increased skill in revision. Learning to revise is a lengthy, complex endeavor. Beginning writers do little revision spontaneously and even experienced writers encounter difficulties in attempting to improve the quality of their texts (Fitzgerald, 1987). Although revision has been extensively dealt with in the writing and learning-to write literature, this book proposes to "revisit" theory and research in this area through a series of new contributions. The introduction begins with an overview of what revision encompasses. It then examines two parallel interrogations that under lie the chapters assembled here, namely: (1) What are the implications of research on cognitive processes for instruction in revision? (2) What are the questions raised by instructional research for the investigation of cognitive processes of revision? A final section presents the chapters of this book.
