Automaticity and Reading: Perspectives from the Instance Theory of Automatization.
Logan, Gordon D.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v13 n2 p123-46 Apr-Jun 1997
Reviews recent literature on automaticity, defining the criteria that distinguish automatic processing from non-automatic processing, and describing modern theories of the underlying mechanisms. Focuses on evidence from studies of reading and draws implications from theory and data for practical issues in teaching reading. Suggests that automaticity may pervade all of the levels of processing involved in reading. (RS)
