Many advances have occurred in the field of reading in the past ten years, not only in theories of the reading process but also in views of how readers comprehend texts (Vacca & Vacca, 1983). We predict that the major thrust of reading research in the next decade will shift from issues concerning the reading process to questions dealing with instruction and reading development.
