Saint-Aubin, Jean; Klein, Raymond M. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2008
When skilled readers search for a target letter while reading for comprehension, they miss the target letter more often when it is embedded in high-frequency function words than in less frequent content words. The magnitude of this "missing-letter-effect" (MLE) was investigated among 180 first- to fifth-grade students as a function of…

Pearson, P. David; Hiebert, Elfrieda H.; Kamil, Michael L. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2007
The authors assert that, in order to teach vocabulary more effectively and better understand its relation to comprehension, we need first to address how vocabulary knowledge and growth are assessed. They argue that "vocabularly assessment is grossly undernourished, both in its theoretical and practical aspects--that it has been driven by…

Hunsberger, Phil – Reading Research Quarterly, 2007
The definition of literacy has become narrow, bounded, and associated predominantly with measurement of cognitive skills used to decode words. In this article, the author explores the absence in the literacy instruction of a clear, deliberate, and intentional focus upon "connectedness" between the reader and the text. The author maintains that…

Rowsell, Jennifer; Pahl, Kate – Reading Research Quarterly, 2007
The commentary argues for an understanding of how texts are put together that accounts for multimodality and draws on children's ways of being and doing in the home, their "habitus". It focuses on identities as socially situated. It argues that it is important to trace the process of sedimenting identities during text production. This offers a way…

Anderson-Inman, Lynne; Horney, Mark A. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2007
To gain meaningful access to the curriculum, students with reading difficulties must overcome substantial barriers imposed by the printed materials they are asked to read.

For the most part, AT advocates for the low-incidence disability populations (i.e., blind or low vision, deaf or hard hearing)…
