Reading as Understanding - or Beyond the Way of All Flesch!
Dilena, Mike
Suggesting that the ability to identify words depends as much on contextual information available when one is reading for meaning as on decoding skills, this paper challenges traditional, mechanistic skills approaches to reading instruction. In addition, it contends that comprehending (relating written material to what one already knows) is a complex constructive process barely touched by traditional instruction in comprehension skills.
