Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The dominating trend in reading research in the past two decades has focused on the study of reading as a process. Basic theoretical research replaced applied research even though many federally funded projects in the area of reading called for improvement of teaching strategies. Applied research was dismissed as unimportant and theorists rushed to define, build, and verify theories of the reading process (Vacca & Vacca, 1982).
