Gail Lovette

Gail Lovette (Ph.D. ’14 Reading) was mentioned by U.Va. professor Dan Willingham in his April 28 Washington Post article, “Can Reading Comprehension Be Taught?”

From the article: “Gail Lovette and I (2014) found three quantitative reviews of RCS instruction in typically developing children and five reviews of studies of at-risk children or those with reading disabilities. All eight reviews reported that RCS instruction boosted reading comprehension, but NONE reported that practice of such instruction yielded further benefit. The outcome of 10 sessions was the same as the outcome of 50.”
