Joshi elected to Reading Hall of Fame

Dr. R. Malatesha Joshi, University Professor in the Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture, has been elected to the Reading Hall of Fame.

The Reading Hall of Fame is an independent organization that recognizes lifetime achievements in the field of reading. It was established in 1973 to contribute, from the collective experiences of its members, to further improvement in reading instruction.

Elected members must have been active in the work of literacy for at least 25 years at the time of nomination. Joshi, who has been studying literacy for over 40 years, said he feels humbled to be associated with other members who have made significant research contributions to the field of literacy.

“I feel honored to be elected to the Reading Hall of Fame because it has a distinguished history and the elected members have maintained a strong and sustained research agenda in the field of reading,” Joshi said.

Joshi will continue his work in literacy hoping to promote reading instruction through scientifically-based reading research and methods.

“We need to move away from thinking that anybody can teach reading and the notion that just because one can read they can teach reading,” Joshi said. “As Louisa Moats has said, ‘teaching reading is rocket science’.”

Joshi will be inducted at the 2021 Literacy Research Association’s Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia in December.
