Christina Clark; Irene Picton; Jessie Ricketts – National Literacy Trust, 2023
Historically, reading has been emphasised more in primary than secondary education, with initiatives to support reading typically falling away as children move up the school system. Recent evidence shows high levels of reading need alongside minimal reading activity in secondary school students. Therefore, there is a pressing need to promote…

Helena Kadmos; Jessica Taylor – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2024
Humanities educators are frequently frustrated by students' poor engagement in reading. The contemporary student experience is characterised by disruption and precarity. Similarly, is that of teachers who work in casual employment. This discussion is located within broader conversations around the neoliberal university, but aims to make more…

Pandey, Aparna; Padakannaya, Prakash – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2023
Perceptual span, the effective visual field in reading covered in a single fixation, varies across orthographies. The perceptual span for reading English covers 3-4-character spaces to the left of fixation and around 14-15-character spaces to the right of the fixation while for Chinese it is one character space to the left and 3-character spaces…

Elfrieda H. Hiebert – Reading Teacher, 2024
Ensuring effective texts for student reading acquisition is a shared goal. This paper addresses the efficacy of decodable and leveled texts, their word features, and outcomes of reorganizing texts by vowel patterns and topics. Sparse evidence supports one text type's superiority in building a strong reading foundation. Further, the decoding…

Cristina Rodriquez; Nuria Gutiérrez; Rocío C. Seoane; Desirée González; Sara C. de León – Journal of Literacy Research, 2024
This study examined the interrelationships among and combined effects of word reading skills and syntactic knowledge on reading prosody in fifth-grade monolingual Spanish-speaking students. We used Spanish standardized tests to assess the participants (n = 169, 79 girls) on word and pseudoword reading skills, syntactic knowledge, and reading…

Hairston-Dotson, Kendall; Incera, Sara – Journal of College Reading and Learning, 2022
The goal of the present investigation is to determine how undergraduate students think about critical reading. We asked 249 students to rate the usefulness of several critical reading skills, how often those skills are taught, and whether they practice those skills when working on their assignments. We found that students consider more complex…

Morgan, Denise N.; DeFrancesco, Justine – Reading Teacher, 2022
Helping students learn how to interpret themes in text can be, without a doubt, challenging. Students benefit from knowing different aspects/textual elements within stories to look for when constructing themes. In this teaching and learning guide, we share seven concrete ways to help students anchor their theme thinking. These seven elements can…

Steacy, Laura M.; Edwards, Ashley A.; Rigobon, Valeria M.; Gutiérrez, Nuria; Marencin, Nancy C.; Siegelman, Noam; Himelhoch, Alexandra C.; Himelhoch, Cristina; Rueckl, Jay; Compton, Donald L. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2023
Quasiregular orthographies such as English contain substantial ambiguities between orthography and phonology that force developing readers to acquire flexibility during decoding of unfamiliar words, a skill referred to as a "set for variability" (SfV). The ease with which a child can disambiguate the mismatch between the decoded form of…

Nightingale, Elena; Branum-Martin, Lee; Greenberg, Daphne – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2023
The patterns of skills in adults who have difficulty with reading may be different from those of children, and thus applying and interpreting methods of measurement may be complex. The goal of this study was to examine the relations among reading skills in this population, by modeling specific reading skills and method of measurement…

Conrad, Nicole J.; Deacon, S. Hélène – Reading Research Quarterly, 2023
All dominant models of reading development ascribe a central role to learning about the orthography in reading acquisition, particularly as children transition to fluent word reading (e.g., Ehri, 2014; Share, 1995). And yet, we know far less about the contributions to word reading development of children's learning about the orthographic form of…

Heidari, Neli; Sebastian Feser, Markus; Scholten, Nina; Schwippert, Knut; Sprenger, Sandra – International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, 2023
Academic language in geography education has attracted attention due to the increasing linguistic heterogeneity in most classrooms. Considering that subject-specific language differs from the language students use in their everyday lives, language-aware geography education contributes to addressing subject-specific language demands. However, there…

Burgess, Andrea N.; Cutting, Laurie E. – Mind, Brain, and Education, 2023
Despite decades of prior research, the mechanisms of skilled reading development remain elusive. Numerous studies have identified word recognition and oral language ability as key components to explain later reading comprehension performance. However, these components alone do not fully explain differences in reading achievement. There is ongoing…
