Dr. Kouider Mokhtari, UT Tyler Anderson-Vukelja-Wright Endowed Professor, has edited an upcoming book titled, "Improving Reading Comprehension through Metacognitive Reading Strategies Instruction."

At UT Tyler, Mokhtari engages in research, teaching and service initiatives aimed at advancing literacy instruction and increasing students' literacy achievement outcomes.

The book, published by Rowman and Littlefield and slated for release this December, addresses the need to help all students, including English learners, improve their ability to read with understanding so that they can succeed not only in their language and literacy classes, but also in their subject area classrooms.

The publication brings together a group of experts representing the fields of first and second language reading. Its goal is to improve students' reading for understanding across languages with metacognitive awareness and use of reading strategies instruction.

For more information, contact Mokhtari, 903.566.7177 or kmokhtari@uttyler.edu.
