TRENDS IN ADULT READING.
MILLER, JUSTIN H.
TRENDS EVIDENT IN ADULT READING DURING THE 1960'S IN THE AREAS OF ADMINISTRATION, PROGRAMS, TEACHING, TECHNIQUES, RESEARCH PROJECTS, AND METHODS OF PROMOTION OF READING PROGRAMS ARE DISCUSSED. TWO INSTANCES OF COMMERCIAL EXPLOITATION BASED ON INTENSE AND OFTEN FALLACIOUS ADVERTISING AND ON PUBLIC IGNORANCE ARE CITED. A POSITIVE TREND IN THE AREA OF RESEARCH ON THE NATURE OF ADULT READING IS NOTED. THE FINDINGS OF STUDIES ON HIGH SPEED READING BY SPACHE, TAYLOR AND LIDDLE, THALBERG AND ELLER, STEPHENS AND ORAM, AND SHALE ARE REVIEWED. MORE RESEARCH IS RECOMMENDED IN THE AREA OF INNER OR SUBVOCAL SPEECH. ANOTHER POSITIVE TREND IS TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF READING PROGRAMS FOR BUSINESS AND INDUSTRIAL CONCERNS. THE ROLE OF THE UNIVERSITY, PARTICULARLY OF NEW YORK UNIVERSITY, IN FOSTERING THE DEVELOPMENT AND SUPERVISION OF BUSINESS AND INDUSTRIAL PROGRAMS IS DISCUSSED. (LS)
