The Cognitive Development of Reading and Reading Comprehension, Paperback / softback Book

The Cognitive Development of Reading and Reading Comprehension Paperback / softback

Edited by Carol McDonald (Assistant Professor, Florida State University) Connor


Learning to read may be the most complex cognitive operation that children are expected to master, and the latest research in cognitive development has offered important insights into how children succeed or fail at this task.

The Cognitive Development of Reading and Reading Comprehension is a multidisciplinary, evidence-based resource for teachers and researchers that examines reading comprehension from a cognitive development perspective, including the principal theories and methods used in the discipline.

The book combines research into basic cognitive processes-genetics, perception, memory, executive functioning, and language-with an investigation of the effects that context and environment have on literacy outcomes, making clear how factors such as health, family life, community, policy, and ecology can influence children's cognitive development.
