Based on five years of work in classrooms, this text approaches portfolios as tools for both instruction and assessment. Emphasis is placed on interpreting information from portfolios rather than just keeping them. Many samples of student work and discussions of what teachers can learn from this work are provided. The text is based on a social constructivist framework.

Most students can read, but they don’t have rigorous independent reading habits. What many students lack is stamina—the ability to persevere in reading texts on their own. Three critical aspects of the topic of stamina in silent reading are addressed by the chapters in this volume: (a) describing the problem and the construct of stamina, (b) describing evidence that stamina can be increased through intentional instruction, and (c) describing the next steps in the design of instruction and research.
Originally published in 1985 Becoming a Nation of Readers continues to be a summary of a vital era of research on reading processes and texts—the 1970s and early 1980s. On some topics such as the use of text difficulty systems for selecting and teaching texts, a substantial amount of research has not been gathered subsequently and Becoming a Nation of Readers remains a summary of critical evidence.
