Implications of Information Processing to Reading Research.
Geyer, John J.
Information processing is discussed as a rapid coalescing of basic disciplines around a point of view with relevance to the reading processes and ultimately to learning to read. Two types of reading models under information processing are analyzed: the O-type model which delineates the organismic systems operating between input and output at a psychological level, and the S-type model which concerns the transformations of the information itself from the printed pattern into meaningful language of a form appropriate to the intended output. These models are conceived of as contributing not directly to reading instruction, but to serve as a seminal focus for further research in a variety of disciplines. Some of these processes unfamiliar to reading teachers should add genuinely new dimensions to the teaching of reading, since they provide a more precise basis for diagnosis and remediation and could serve a taxonomic function for the structuring of individualized reading programs. The author feels that it is the researcher's job to find out more about these processes so that research could move from the laboratory into the classroom. References are included. (AW)
