A little more than a half century after its introduction, the Dolch List of 220 Basic Sight Words (1936) continues to be used in classrooms and cited in reading textbooks. In addition to its instructional application in both classroom and clinic (Fry, 1977), the list is also used for assessment, and published as a test (Dolch, 1942).
