Why our children can't read, and what we can do about it : a scientific revolution in reading by Diane McGuinness( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

She explains that the ability to read depends on the ability to hear the sounds of our language correctly, and on a working knowledge of something called the spelling code, which is the key to how English spelling works: what letters and letter combinations go with which sounds. This connection of sounds and the symbols that represent them is crucial to learning how to read, and McGuinness explains it with rigor, clarity, and expertise. Moreover, she shows how this method is scientifically proven and has transformed so-called dyslexics and troubled readers into expert readers and spellers, often in astoundingly short periods of time. Diane McGuinness has given us the blueprint for a reading revolution - one that offers real hope to the millions of children and adults who are failing needlessly in school and in life
Early reading instruction : what science really tells us about how to teach reading by Diane McGuinness( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early Reading Instruction is an analysis of the research evidence from early writing systems to computer models of reading. In this book, Diane McGuinness provides an innovative solution to the "reading war"--The century-old debate over the efficacy of phonics (sound-based) versus whole-word (meaning-based) methods. She has developed a prototype - a set of elements that are critical to the success of a reading method."--Jacket
Language development and learning to read : the scientific study of how language development affects reading skill by Diane McGuinness( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Research on reading has tried, and failed, to account for wide disparities in reading skill even among children taught by the same method. Why do some children learn to read easily and quickly while others, in the same classroom and taught by the same teacher, don't learn to read at all? In Language Development and Learning to Read, Diane McGuinness examines scientific research that might explain these disparities. She focuses on reading predictors, analyzing the effect individual differences in specific perceptual, linguistic, and cognitive skills may have on a child's ability to read. Because of the serious methodological problems she finds in the existing research on reading, many of the studies McGuinness cues come from other fields-developmental psychology, psycholinguistics, and the speech and hearing sciences-and provide a new perspective on which language functions matter most for reading and academic success." "McGuinness finds that research evidence from other disciplines does not support the phonological development theory, which has dominated reading research for thirty years, but finds a "tantalizing connection" between core language functions and reading success in longitudinal studies on the development of general language function. McGuinness's analysis of the evidence shows the urgent need for a shift in our thinking about how to achieve reading success. Book jacket."--Jacket
