O'Leary, Robin; Ehri, Linnea C. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
The authors examined whether exposing young students to spellings as they learn proper names would facilitate memory for the spoken names when tested without the spellings present (i.e., orthographic facilitation), whether emergent readers with letter knowledge would show this effect, and whether phonemic segmentation (PS) training would enhance…

McTigue, Erin M.; Solheim, Oddny Judith; Zimmer, Wendi K.; Uppstad, Per Henning – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
Overall, game-based technology for early reading instruction has not robustly met the learning potentials of young readers. To better understand the effects and limitations of computer-assisted instruction in classrooms, researchers have called for more critical attention to learning theory, methodological selection, and context for learning.…

Lam, Katie; Chen, Xi (Becky); Deacon, S. Hélène – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
Understanding text in a second language can be particularly challenging. The authors explored the contribution of morphological awareness in children's first and second languages to development in second-language reading comprehension. Critically, the authors examined the role of a skill that might be at the heart of these cross-linguistic…

Proctor, C. Patrick; Silverman, Rebecca D.; Harring, Jeffrey R.; Jones, Renata Love; Hartranft, Anna M. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
Students are expected to comprehend and produce increasingly complex texts in upper elementary school, and academic language and literacy skills are considered critical to meeting these expectations. Notions of academic language are also controversial and require careful deliberation when applied to traditionally minoritized populations, including…

Zhang, Xin; McEneaney, John E. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
Enhancing writing pedagogy in university-based courses for students of English as a foreign language has been a long-term goal of educators and researchers. Most recent work, however, has relied on qualitative methodologies that limit our capacity to generalize findings. In this quantitative study, the authors adopted a quasi-experimental control…

Garcia, Antero – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
The author explored the literacy practices in tabletop gaming communities. Focusing on the role of spatiality and materiality in nondigital contexts, this study broadens how literacies research engages with sociocultural analysis of primarily analog settings. Building on experiences in playing the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, the…

Kieffer, Michael J.; Christodoulou, Joanna A. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
The authors investigated the roles of reading fluency in mediating and moderating the relation between executive functions and reading comprehension. Linguistically diverse students (n = 106) were assessed on multiple measures of reading fluency at the passage and word levels, reading comprehension, and executive functions in grade 7 and again in…

Zhang, Dongbo; Ke, Sihui – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
The authors examined the complexity of the simple view of reading, focusing on morphological decoding fluency in fourth-grade readers of English in Singapore. The participants were three groups of students who all learned to become bilingual and biliterate in the English language (EL) and their respective ethnic language in school but differed in…

Santos, Sandra; Cadime, Irene; Viana, Fernanda Leopoldina; Ribeiro, Iolanda – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
Research has widely demonstrated the contribution of word reading, listening comprehension skills, and oral reading fluency to reading comprehension performance. However, the existence of reciprocal relations among these skills has been investigated less frequently. The authors examined the directionality of the relations among reading…

Compton-Lilly, Catherine F.; Rogers, Rebecca L.; Lewis Ellison, Tisha – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
In this meta-ethnography, the authors analyze the metaphors that inhabit highly cited examples of family literacy scholarship. Meta-ethnography is a methodology, as described by Noblit and Hare, in which metaphors are analyzed as linguistic tools; in this article, they are used to compare and synthesize understandings across existing ethnographic…

Turner, Kristen Hawley; Hicks, Troy; Zucker, Lauren – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
Since the emergence of the World Wide Web and e-reading devices in the late 1990s and early 2000s, reading research has focused on issues of website credibility, search and navigation strategies, and the ability to comprehend text on-screen as compared with in print. What has been missing, however, are data about the specific texts that…

Kim, Young-Suk Grace; Guo, Qian; Liu, Yan; Peng, Yan; Yang, Li – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
Morphological awareness, or the knowledge and awareness of morphemes and morphological structures in a language, has been shown to be important to reading. The authors investigated multiple pathways by which compounding morphological awareness is related to reading comprehension: indirect pathways via vocabulary, word reading, and listening…

Luo, Rufan; Tamis-LeMonda, Catherine S.; Mendelsohn, Alan L. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
The authors examined children's access to books in 153 four-year-olds from low-income, U.S. ethnic-minority families. Mothers reported on the number of books available to their children and the variety of books their children had, such as concept books about letters, numbers, and shapes and narrative books about cultural beliefs and relationships.…

Elimelech, Adi; Aram, Dorit – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
The authors developed a digital spelling game to promote children's early literacy skills. Based on the dual-coding theory, the authors studied the benefits of auditory support alone versus auditory+visual support. Children played the game in three conditions: no support, hearing the whole word; auditory-only support, hearing a word segmented; and…

Hoffman, James V.; Alvermann, Donna E. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
The authors used a conceptual analysis, following Foucauldian genealogy, to consider the history of Nila Banton Smith's "American Reading Instruction." The goal was to make better sense of the challenges and opportunities facing literacy instruction today and to articulate the enormous responsibilities of literacy scholars to critically…
