READING IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE--AREAS OF INVESTIGATION.
PEI, MARJORIE LOWRY
FOR SUCCESSFUL CURRICULUM REVISION REGARDING THE DEVELOPMENT OF READING SKILLS IN THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAM, THERE MUST BE CONTINUOUS EVALUATION OF EXISTING THEORIES AS WELL AS INVESTIGATION OF NEW ONES. AREAS WHICH HAVE ALREADY BEEN EVALUATED FOR THEIR USEFULNESS IN THE TEACHING OF READING IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE ARE READABILITY FORMULAS, DIRECT AND INCIDENTAL VOCABULARY STUDY, DICTIONARY USE, WORD STRUCTURE STUDY, AND THE TRANSFERRABILITY OF RECENTLY LEARNED VOCABULARY INTO NEW CONTEXTS. OTHER AREAS YET TO BE EXPLORED INCLUDE THEORIES OF THE TEACHING OF IDIOMS, RECOGNITION OF CULTURAL CLUES IN READING MATERIALS, AND FACTORS PREDICTING SUCCESS IN THE READING OF A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. THIS DOCUMENT APPEARED IN THE "DFL BULLETIN," VOLUME 6, NUMBER 4, MAY 1967. (SS)
