THE STATE OF READING.
HERBER, HAROLD L.
NATIONAL CONCERN ABOUT THE STATE OF READING EXISTS TODAY BECAUSE MANY CITIZENS ARE UNABLE TO READ ADEQUATELY. THE TREND TOWARD A REASONED RESPONSE TO THE READING CRISIS IS BASED ON THE FOLLOWING FACTORS -- (1) THE TEACHER'S SKILL IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE MATERIALS HE USES, (2) NO ONE METHOD OR SET OF MATERIALS ADQUATELY SUITS ALL STUDENTS, AND (3) RESEARCH FINDINGS NEED TO BE TRANSLATED INTO CLASSROOM PRACTICE. EVIDENCE OF THESE FACTORS FOUND IN RESEARCH STUDIES AND PROGRAMS IS EXAMINED. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE TO ENCOURAGE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS TO HELP TEACHERS IMPROVE INSTRUCTION. REFERENCES ARE PROVIDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH CONFERENCE (HONOLULU, NOVEMBER 23-25, 1967). (BK)
