How good readers read (1)
  • Good readers make use of four different kinds of clues:
  • Clues of meaning (semantic)
  • Clues of word order and grammar (syntactic)
  • Visual clues – recognising letter patterns such as -ight (graphic)
  • Phonic clues – sounding out letters
how good readers read 2
How good readers read (2)
  • Good readers:
  • bring their knowledge of the world to inform their reading
  • understand and interact with what they read
  • move backwards and forwards within the text
  • recognise many common words and parts of words
  • use the sound system to make out unfamiliar words
  • use context to monitor meaning.
frith s model of reading acquisition
Frith’s model of reading acquisition
  • There are three stages in the acquisition of literacy:
  • Logographic: based on crude, visual features
  • Alphabetic: based on phoneme awareness
  • Orthographic: based on visual analysis
  • – independent of sound
  • – use of internal lexicon
