EDL 762 Overview
Students answer the following questions: How has word knowledge (a.k.a. word identification, word recognition) been defined by literacy theorists and practitioners? What is the relationship of word knowledge to the theories of cognition? How has it been assessed? What happens when word knowledge development varies? Students examine the various ways in which word recognition has been defined. They evaluate connections between these definitions and current instructional practices and analyze the strengths and weaknesses of methods for assessing word knowledge.
