PSY 341K • Experimental Research in Psych of Reading
11:00 AM-12:00 PM
The aim of this seminar course is to examine in depth the current major issues in the psychology of reading. Topics include the evidence for and against the phonological recoding hypothesis, the proposition that the skilled reader converts the letters of the printed word into phonological form en route to its meaning. Our effort involves reading the latest papers on the subject, discussing and evaluating them as preparation for the development of a novel test of the hypothesis, which we then conduct. Each student is required to read a number of research papers each week, discuss and evaluate their results in the seminar.
Grades will be based entirely on the quantity and quality of class participation.
