Reading Difficulties, Reading-Related Self-Perceptions, and Strategies for Overcoming Negative Self-Beliefs.
Chapman, James W.; Tunmer, William E.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v19 n1 p5-24 Jan-Mar 2003
Reviews a number of studies on the development of achievement-related self-system factors in relation to young children's reading acquisition. Shows that phonological processing ability and letter-naming knowledge at the outset of schooling not only predict subsequent reading performance but also academic self-concept and reading self-efficacy. Maintains that attention to the development of word-level skills and strategies is essential. (SG)
