RESEARCH IN READING FOR THE MIDDLE GRADES. AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY.
CUTTS, WARREN G.
THIS BULLETIN PRESENTS RESEARCH STUDIES IN READING ON THE UPPER ELEMENTARY GRADE LEVEL DURING THE PERIOD FROM 1955 THROUGH 1960. THIS COMPILATION WAS UNDERTAKEN BY THE OFFICE OF EDUCATION IN AN ATTEMPT TO BRING TOGETHER THE UNPUBLISHED AS WELL AS PUBLISHED STUDIES OF THAT 5-YEAR PERIOD. THE 238 STUDIES WHICH ARE OUTLINED, SUMMARIZED, AND ANNOTATED ARE CLASSIFIED UNDER FIVE GENERAL HEADINGS. UNDER "CAUSATIVE FACTORS AND TESTING" ARE SUCH FACTORS AS INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES, INTELLIGENCE, BILINGUALISM, VISION AND HEARING, AND READINESS. FACTORS RELATING TO PUPIL ATTITUDES, PERSONAL ADJUSTMENT, MOTIVATION, AND INTERESTS ARE GROUPED AS "PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS." THE THIRD BROAD CATEGORY IS "READING SKILLS." SUBTOPICS UNDER THIS GROUP INCLUDE LISTENING SKILL AND COMPREHENSION, ORAL READING, VOCABULARY, STUDY SKILLS, AND PHONICS. "EDUCATIONAL MEDIA," OTHER THAN PRINTED MATERIALS, COMPRISE THE FOURTH CATEGORY. ALTHOUGH THIS AREA ACCOUNTED FOR ONLY FOUR REPORTED STUDIES, THEIR RISING IMPORTANCE CAUSED THE AUTHOR TO PROVIDE A SPECIAL HEADING FOR MECHANICAL DEVICES, TELEVISION, READABILITY, AND READING MATERIALS. UNDER THE FINAL GROUP HEADING, "EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES," ARE COMPARATIVE STUDIES, INDIVIDUALIZED READING, SPELLING, SUBJECT FIELDS, AND TEACHER PREPARATION.
