The Simple View of Reading: Advancements and False Impressions
Catts, Hugh W.
Remedial and Special Education, v39 n5 p317-323 Sep-Oct 2018
In this article, I highlight the impact that the simple view of reading (SVR) has had on the field of reading over the last 30 years. I argue that the SVR has led to many significant advancements in our understanding of reading comprehension. I also contend that it has contributed to some false impressions concerning comprehension that impact research and practice in important ways.
