Longa, Rachel – Educational Theory, 2022
Drawing on the work of Simone Weil, this article argues that the human purpose of reading is the creation of meaning through interpretive activity.

Hoover, Wesley A.; Tunmer, William E. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2022
A recent article in this journal claims that the simple view of reading represents a long-outdated account of what underlies the ability to read.

Kovac, Miha; Mohar, Alenka Kepic – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2022
Textbooks have been the primary teaching tool since the 19th century.

Calvi, Michael; Vieira, Ana Paula Alves; Georgiou, George; Parrila, Rauno – Australasian Journal of Special and Inclusive Education, 2023
A number of studies have examined the effects of reading interventions for younger readers; however, there does not appear to be any existing syntheses examining the effect of reading interventions on students in Years 7--12. The purpose of this study was to establish whether such a synthesis is feasible by reviewing the methodological quality of…

Reading is perhaps the essential practice of modern civilization. For centuries, it has been seen as key to both personal fulfillment and social progress, and millions today depend on it to participate fully in our society.

We begin with a discussion of the role of braille in the lives of those who read and write it and a call for more attention to braille in the reading sciences. We then give an overview of the history and development of braille, focusing on its…

Au, Kathryn H.; Raphael, Taffy E. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2021
We propose centering discussions of the science of reading around five values to increase the likelihood of bringing all students to high levels of literacy. These values are (1) collective responsibility, (2) equity through higher order thinking, (3) a rigorous system, (4) accountability with transparency, and (5) stability and sustainability.

Galbally, Jaclyn; Scharff, Nancy – Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, 2022
A growing, research-based consensus supports addressing our nation's literacy crisis through instruction aligned with the Science of Reading (SoR). We recognize, however, that the complexity of SoR content, alongside the multiplicity of instructional decisions and practices, and the unique features of each classroom and school, make simple…

Despite the common and growing use of and instruction on digital reading in schools, the ways in which reading comprehension may operate differently in paper and online environments are still underexplored.
