Sample text

This shift in the view of language acquisition from conditioned behavior to natural process inevitably reverberated in the reading research community in the form of psycholinguistics (Goodman, 1965; F. Smith, 1973). As with the generative grammarians, psycholinguists argued that because all human languages follow similar production rules, the capacity for language must be built in. Psycholinguists carried this assumption beyond oral language into print or reading. They also focused on semantics or meaning and how meaning is acquired, represented, and used during the process of reading.

23). This unfavorable view of knowledge as information getting is well represented in the writings of Louise Rosenblatt, especially her classic treatise The Reader, the Text, the Poem: The Transactional Theory of the Literary Work. , Britton, 1982; Cox & Many, 1992; Fish, 1980). Rosenblatt (1978/1994) contends that depending on the goal of the learner and the instructor, an individual’s response to a text falls along a continuum from an efferent to an aesthetic stance. Those assuming a more efferent stance seek to uncover the truths voiced by some invisible or anonymous author: In nonaesthetic reading, the reader’s attention is focused primarily on what will remain as the residue after the reading—the information to be acquired, the logical solution to a problem, the actions to be carried out.

To capture this historical perspective, we surveyed eras in reading research and practice that have unfolded in the past 60 years and that symbolize alternative perspectives on learners and learning. For each, we described certain internal and external conditions that helped frame that period, as well as the views of and principles of learning that are characteristic of that era. Moreover, we explored both the prevailing views of learning within those periods and rival stances that existed as educational undercurrents.
