Reading Comprehension: The Role of Experience, Language Knowledge and Processing Strategies.
Dilena, Mike
This paper suggests that by emphasizing word identification skills and oral reading and by using limited reading materials, teachers have neglected reading for meaning. Following a review of current instructional practices, the paper explains how understanding writing depends on the world experience, language knowledge, and processing strategies that readers bring to the text. A final section summarizes implications for teaching. (Author)
