The Simple View of Reading - essential professional knowledge for teachers and recommended to share with parents

Postby Debbie_Hepplewhite » Tue Aug 07, 2018 5:52 pm

In England, Sir Jim Rose recommended the use and promotion of the Simple View of Reading (Gough and Tunmer 1986) for teachers' professional knowledge in his ‘Independent Review of the Teaching of Early Reading Final Report ( Jim Rose, March 2006)

Research of Importance to All Educators

By Linda Farrell, Marcia Davidson, Michael Hunter and Tina Osenga

In spite of its importance in the world of reading research, many practicing educators do not know about the Simple View of Reading. It is a formula based on the widely accepted view that reading has two basic components: word recognition (decoding) and comprehension. The Simple View formula has been supported and validated by a number of research studies. Understanding the formula can help educators with assessing reading weaknesses and providing appropriate instruction.

The Simple View formula presented by Gough and Tunmer in 1986 is:

Decoding (D) x Language Comprehension (LC) = Reading Comprehension (RC)

Here is a handy printout of the diagram of the Simple View of Reading (and the Simple View of Writing) that can be used in schools and tutoring scenarios:

This can help to generate collegial discussions in the analysis of pupils' reading profiles - followed by making notes of any intervention that may be required.
