Cutting Edge Information that Supports Ken Goodman’s Comprehensive Model of Reading

Nine presentations by leading scholars and literacy researchers that explore key aspects of the reading model. Taken together they present, in fuller detail than ever before, how readers make sense of print. The model is comprehensive in that it attempts to be consistent with contemporary theories of language, language development, visual perception,  psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, and brain function.

Ken Goodman has called reading a Psycholinguistic Guessing Game. He presents central concepts of this comprehensive model.

The other speakers present current research ranging from brain function to the nature of language and theory based reading instruction.

An objective is to explore how a meaning construction view leads to fuller understanding of how to support reading development in learners.
