What is the 'Bottom up' early learning theory?
Readers first identify letters,
then put them together to form words,
and finally derive meaning.
What is the 'Top down' theory?
Readers only sample enough print to confirm or disconfirm the predictions they have about meaning based on prior knowledge of topic or cues such as pictures and titles.
What are the 3 cueing systems of language?
- Graphophonic - symbols & phonics, print, letters.
- Semantic - using background knowledge, context clues in the text, word order, "Does it make sense?"
- Syntactic - structure, using knowledge of language patterns, "Does it sound right?"
All these combined makes meaning.
