Ken Goodman

Kenneth S. Goodman was Professor Emeritus, Language, Reading, and Culture, College of Education, University of Arizona, where he spent a long professional life observing the reading process in active use. From his earliest miscue research published in 1965 to the most recent presentation of his understanding of the reading process in 1997, he continued to fuel thought-provoking discussions of the nature of reading. His research earned him major awards from NCTE, IRA, NRC, and NCRLL. An elected member of the Reading Hall of Fame, Goodman is a past president of IRA, NCRLL, and the Center for Expansion of Language and Thinking.
