Why Do Some Students Fail To Learn To Read? Ockham's Razor and the Conditions of Learning.
Cambourne, Brian
Reading Teacher, v54 n8 p784-86 May 2001
Addresses why seemingly normal students sometimes fail to learn to read. Suggests five reasons for this dilemma. Reports the results of applying to the author's theory a principle first espoused by William of Ockham some 700 years ago. Supports the notion that this theory is robust enough to explain both the successful and unsuccessful learning of reading. (SG)
