Comprehension Instruction: What Makes Sense Now, What Might Make Sense Soon

Michael Pressley


"Efficient reading involves both speed and comprehension. Most readers sacrifice one for the other. They reason incorrectly that one must read quickly without retaining information or slowly in order to retain the information. This is false reasoning. Slow reading is inefficient. Fast reading is efficient" (Kluepfel, n.d).
