Grant Wiggins recently wrote what is clearly the best piece out there on reading comprehension research: On reading, Part 2: what the research REALLY reveals.
He’s promised to write a Part Two soon, also, which I — and I’m sure, many other educators — are looking forward to seeing (he just has – On reading, Part 4: research on the comprehension strategies – a closer look).
On literacy and strategy, part 6: my first cut at recommendations is another great post by Grant Wiggins.
I figured that his post would make a “Best” list like this timely.
In addition to his first post and his soon-to-be-published next one, here are a few others that I think belong on this list. I hope that readers will share more in the comments:

Here are two other related posts I’ve published:
How to help English learners read more quickly is from The British Council.
‘The Reading Strategies Book’: An Interview With Jennifer Serravallois the second in my series of author interviews at Education Week Teacher.
Teaching Your Students to Read Like Pros is from Edutopia.
Can I Still Rely on the National Reading Panel Report? is an excellent post from literacy expert Timothy Shanahan. I certainly still rely on it, and it was great to read that follow-up studies have found that its recommendations work for English Language Learners, too.
Improving reading comprehension through strategy instruction is from The Education Endowment Foundation.
When Readers Struggle: Reading Comprehension, Part 3, Talking and Writing After Reading is from Russ on Reading.
