A Psycholinguistic Analysis of Reading and Its Implications for Classroom Instruction.
Lira, Juan R.
The purposes of this paper are to explore the reading process from a psycholinguistic point of view and to discuss some of the implications that may have a direct bearing on children's becoming effective and efficient processors of meaning. The paper first reviews related literature in the following areas: language acquisition before school, children as learners, classroom environment, comprehension and reading, conditions promoting effective and efficient reading, and the role of the teacher. It next offers conclusions about the teaching of reading based on the research review, and concludes with recommendations concerning reading instruction. (FL)
