Section III: Decoding and Word Study Teaching Reading Sourcebook 2nd Edition
Word Reading Skills • To clarify how word reading skills contribute to proficient reading, two explanations of how the reading process works are: • The Adams Model of Skilled Reading which describes the skilled reading process as a network of connections among four processors: orthographic, phonological, semantic, and context. • Ehri’s Phases of Word Recognition Development which explains that word recognition develops in five phases: pre-alphabetic, partial alphabetic, full alphabetic, consolidated alphabetic, and automatic.
Decoding • The connection of the letters (orthographic information) with the sounds (phonological information) to form words is decoding. • Learning to decode well and early is essential to proficient reading. • Research has shown that much of the variance in ninth graders’ reading comprehension can be explained by first grade decoding skill.* *Connecticut Longitudinal Study (1992)
