THE PSYCHOLOGY OF READING.
KINGSTON, ALBERT J.
THE WORK OF CERTAIN PSYCHOLOGISTS WHICH MAY HAVE BEARING UPON THE FIELD OF READING, PARTICULARLY IN COGNITION AND DEVELOPMENT, IS SURVEYED AND POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS OF PSYCHOLOGY TO READING ARE SUGGESTED. A WELL FORMULATED PSYCHOLOGY OF READING AND AN ADEQUATE THEORY OF READING HAVE NOT BEEN DEVELOPED. INSTEAD, READING SPECIALISTS HAVE TENDED TO SELECT VARIOUS PSYCHOLOGICAL POSITIONS TO SUPPORT CERTAIN OF THEIR OWN PRACTICES AND BELIEFS. PSYCHOLOGY MAY PROVIDE THE IMPETUS FOR DEVELOPING A THEORY OF READING WHICH MAY IN TURN ALLOW FOR MORE PRECISE RESEARCH IN THE FIELD. THIS PAPER WAS DELIVERED AT THE INTERNATIONAL READING ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (SEATTLE, MAY 1967). (RH)
