This was a very interesting article! I have already learned so much new information. During my student teaching, I saw that some of the students would have to draw shapes around their spelling words, and now I understand why. I agree mostly with the parallel letter recognition model. As I read, I do believe that I recognize letters simultaneously, therefore recognizing the word that I am reading. I really did not understand neural network model. I read it a few times, but it is still confusing. Can anybody explain it?
