Transfer Effects across Contextual and Linguistic Boundaries: Evidence from Poor Readers.
Bourassa, Derrick C.; Levy, Betty Ann; Casey, Andrew; Dowin, Samantha
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v71 n1 p45-61 Oct 1998
Details two experiments examining transfer effects across contextual and linguistic boundaries with poor readers. Concludes that non-fluent readers do not completely integrate surface characteristics (words) and the message of the text. Word-level representations remain free to support transfer across various processing episodes. Maintains that a variety of reading experiences aimed at promoting word-recognition fluency will benefit developing readers. (Author/KB)
