THE DEVELOPING CLIMATE FOR READING RESEARCH--PROGRAMS VS. PROJECTS.
ADAMS, RICHARD B.; PENNEY, MONTE
PROGRAMMATIC RESEARCH IS DISCUSSED AS ONE OF THE BASIC NEEDS OF READING RESEARCH. OTHER NEEDS ARE--(1) FOR BASIC RESEARCH THAT FOCUSES ON THE READING PROCESS, (2) FOR LEADERSHIP THAT VALUES SCIENTIFIC OBJECTIVITY AND INTELLECTUAL HONESTY, AND (3) TO INFORM AND CONVINCE THE PUBLIC OF THE POSSIBLE CONTRIBUTIONS OF READING RESEARCH. PROGRAMMATIC RESEARCH HAS A FLEXIBLE FORMAT, IS MULTIDISCIPLINARY, AND ALLOWS CREATIVITY, SIMULTANEOUS REPLICATION OF CRUCIAL EXPERIMENTS, AND THE USE OF NEW RESEARCH MANAGEMENT TOOLS. AN INCREASE IN THE USE OF PROGRAMMATIC RESEARCH IN THE FUTURE IS SUGGESTED BY--(1) THE FINDINGS OF THE COORDINATED FIRST GRADE READING STUDY WHICH SUGGEST THE NEED FOR BROADER STUDIES OF BEGINNING READING, (2) CHALL'S "LEARNING TO READ--THE GREAT DEBATE" WHICH ARGUES FOR RESEARCH THAT WILL PRODUCE SOUND THEORIES ON READING, AND (3) PROJECT LITERACY AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY WHICH FOLLOWS THE PROGRAMMATIC FORMAT IN DESIGNING BEGINNING READING TEXTS. THERE IS GROWING INTEREST IN DYSLEXIA AND OTHER RELATED READING DISABILITIES WHICH REQUIRE A MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL READING CONFERENCE (TAMPA, NOVEMBER 30 - DECEMBER 2, 1967). (NS)
