This reorganization presents a definition of the reading skill followed by three sections: a section on assessing the skill, a section on teaching the skill, and a section on how the skill might affect English language learners.

Each assessment resource is briefly identified by purpose and offers both the assessment tool for the student and the data collection tool for the teacher.
