Cognitive Research Can Inform Reading Education.
Perfetti, Charles A.
Journal of Research in Reading, v18 n2 p106-15 Sep 1995
Discusses four clear contributions of cognitive research that deserve special attention: (1) skilled readers read words rather than skip them; (2) less skilled readers do rely on context; (3) skilled readers use phonology in reading; and (4) children learn to read successfully by learning how their writing system works.
