ABSTRACT
AN INITIAL PHASE of the U.S. Office of Education's Right to Read Effort was planned around a Literature Search Project designed to identify and analyze models of the psychological processes involved in reading and in learning to read. Since language clearly plays a central role in both these processes, a third area was added which would consider models of language acquisition. In this paper models from three different sources, developmental psychology, psycholinguistics, and information processing are analyzed in terms of their basic concepts and assumptions, the research literature pertinent to the testing of hypotheses derived from the models, and the implications of each for reading. The final section on needed research concludes with an appeal for greater cooperation among the aforementioned disciplines and the field of reading with the mutual goal of enhancing children's intellectual development in general and their reading comprehension and enjoyment in particular.
