A Comparison of Reading Comprehension Processes in Good and Poor Comprehenders.
Golinkoff, Roberta Michnick
This paper critically reviews selected studies in the area of reading comprehension, in order to characterize the differential patterns that skilled and unskilled comprehenders employ. The research reviewed is organized into three broad components: (1) decoding, (2) accessing the meaning of single printed words, and (3) text organization processes, or obtaining meaning from larger stretches of text. Results from various studies suggest that good and poor comprehenders differ primarily in the first and third components. Speculations are offered on the interrelationships between these components and their effect on reading comprehension processes. (Author)
