This volume presents articles from The Journal of College Literacy and Learning, a peer-reviewed journal produced by IRA’s College Literacy and Learning Special Interest Group. This journal, under its former title Forum for Reading, goes back more than 30 years. For this volume, the editors have chosen 27 articles that they believe can instruct and inform both the new professional and the seasoned veteran. The articles are grouped into three sections: Theoretical Issues, Research, and Program and Strategy Descriptions. Articles in the theory section provide insights and perspectives into the theoretical framework for instructing, designing, and implementing college reading programs. The research section is notable in the variety of topics addressed, and it presents research that examines the efficacy of various pedagogical approaches. The section on program and strategy descriptions presents articles with practical ideas that educators can put to use immediately. Authors of these articles have provided the why it works and how it works, in addition to the expected “what to do.” Readers will find this an informative volume that not only answers questions about college reading but also sparks more questions, thus keeping research and thinking in the field of college reading moving forward.
