Description

Cognitive psychologists have discovered that reading represents a natural laboratory for studying almost all cognitive processes: from sensation and perception to comprehension and reasoning. This introductory-level textbook examines the psychology of reading and the important cognitive principles that pertain to it. Though grounded in the latest research, this new edition maintains the objective of its predecessor--to provide a highly accessible introduction for students approaching the subject for the first time. It builds on the useful and well established principles of the first edition while incorporating the substantial growth of knowledge since its publication nearly a decade ago. The text is intended for students from a variety of disciplines, although those in courses on educational psychology and the psychology of reading will find it particularly helpful.show more
