Understanding the Reading Process
S. Jay Samuels
ABSTRACT: Reading comprehension is influenced by external factors (such as typography and the content, style, and format of the text) and factors within the reader (such as the reader’s prior knowledge, decoding ability, viewpoint and purpose in reading, and general cognitive resources). A discussion of these factors and of a reading model provides the context for methods of diagnosing and remediating reading problems.
