Making Sense of Reading--And of Reading Instruction
Smith, Frank
Harvard Educational Review, 47, 3, 386-95, 77
Author claims that the essential antecedents of reading consist of two cognitive insights: that written language is meaningful and that written language is different from spoken language. He argues that current instructional practices may hinder the learning of these insights and suggests ways in which parents and teachers may help children to understand that reading makes sense.
