PREFACE
We compare this learning journey to traveling
along the reading superhighway with the
destination being a richer understanding of reading
instruction: how it has been taught in the past, the
disciplines that have contributed to the study of
reading along the way, and the new frontiers into
which the field is migrating.
(Cobb & Kallus, 2011)
