What does “Dolch” mean and what are “sight-words”?

The concept of sight words was created in 1948 by Edward William Dolch, a professor at the University of Illinois. Dolch identified 220 "service words" that children must recognize in order to read fluently, many of which cannot be sounded out and must be learned by sight. These words are commonly referred to “Dolch” word, sight word, lightening words for high-frequency words.
