Cognitive Processes in Reading: Implications for Further Research and Classroom Practice.
Jenkinson, Marion D.
The lack of existing research on the cognitive processes in reading is discussed. The definition of cognitive processes, appropriate measuring instruments, concensus concerning the activity to be measured, and problems inherent in the materials and the reader are cited as limitations that are responsible for a shortage of research. Implications for classroom practice based on what research has been done are noted as follows: (1) aptitudes, attitudes, and abilities which will mature into basic cognitive abilities must be developed, (2) a systematic, sequential development process must be used, (3) judgment must be cultivated, (4) the ability to recognize relevant and irrelevant statements must be refined, (5) different thinking modes must be developed, (6) teacher means of eliciting comprehension must be expanded to include depth questions, outlining, summarizing, precis writing, and student-formulated questions, and (7) constant attention must be given to the development of each skill. Further research is recommended. References are listed. (BS)
