Topic: Reading Research Beyond English-as-First-Language Populations: Some Theoretical and Methodological Considerations

1:00PM - 2:30PM EST (Toronto Time)

*2:30PM-3:00PM = Student Q&A session with speaker via Zoom

Abstract: Using the Simple View of Reading and Componential Model of Reading as frameworks, the complexities of conducting reading research in learners who (1) acquire and learn English as a second language, and (2) read in a non-alphabetic orthography, are examined. To this end, I discuss some recent work relating to elective and circumstantial bilinguals as well as children learning the Chinese language. Specifically, the applicability of existing reading frameworks in explaining reading development of these different learners is presented. Additionally, within the context of the studies presented, I highlight the potential of primary and secondary analytical methods (e.g., systematic reviews, person-centered and variable-centered approaches) in addressing some issues relating to research in these learner groups.
