A Technology of Reading and Writing; Volume 1, Learning to Read and Write: A Task Analysis.
Smith, Donald E. P.
The processes involved in learning to read and write are described and analyzed using a behavioral-engineering approach. A theoretical model of the learning process is presented and supported by discussions of learning as a discriminative process, of learning modalities, stimulus processing, and information processing during reading and writing. Criterion-referenced testing is discussed in the context of measuring competence in reading and writing. The theoretical discussions are illustrated with examples of instructional materials. (AA)
