520    A psychology professor specializing in the cognitive and 
       neurological bases of language and reading discusses why 
       children and adults have been incorrectly taught how to 
       read and offers suggestions on how to vastly improve this 
       vital life skill. 
520    Over half of our children read at a basic level and few 
       become highly proficient. Many American children and 
       adults are not functionally literate, with serious 
       consequences. Poor readers are more likely to drop out of 
       the educational system and as adults are unable to fully 
       participate in the workforce, adequately manage their own 
       health care, or advance their children's education. In 
       this book, cognitive scientist Mark Seidenberg reveals the
       underexplored science of reading, which spans cognitive 
       science, neurobiology, and linguistics. As Seidenberg 
       shows, the disconnect between science and education is a 
       major factor in America's chronic underachievement. How we
       teach reading places many children at risk of failure, 
       discriminates against poorer kids, and discourages even 
       those who could have become more successful readers. 
       Children aren't taught basic print skills because 
       educators cling to the disproved theory that good readers 
       guess the words in texts, a strategy that encourages 
       skimming instead of close reading. Interventions for 
       children with reading disabilities are delayed because 
       parents are mistakenly told their kids will catch up if 
       they work harder. Learning to read is more difficult for 
       children who speak a minority dialect in the home, but 
       that is not reflected in classroom practices. By building 
       on science's insights, we can improve how our children 
       read, and take real steps toward solving the inequality 
       that illiteracy breeds. Both an expert look at our 
       relationship with the written word and a rousing call to 
       action, Language at the Speed of Sight is essential for 
       parents, educators, policy makers, and all others who want
       to understand why so many fail to read, and how to change 
       that.--Adapted from dust jacket.
