More on the psychology of reading

My post re: recommended reading comprehension readings apparently hit a need. I've received a number of emails from practicing school psychologists. Thanks, in particular, to Allison Gunne, a practicing psych. of 15 years who is now back working on her doctorate. She nominated an article by Rayner et al (2001) titled "How Psychological Science Informs the Teaching of Reading". Thanks Allison.

The Eides also pointed out the great presentation by Bob Dougherty at the Asilomar Regional Reading Conference, The Literate Brain: A neuroscience perspective on reading development, available at the Stanford Institute for Reading and Learning's publication page.

It will be a great day when the science gets out of the laboratory and into the classroom.
