Reading Goals for the Disadvantaged.
Figurel, J. Allen, Ed.
The International Reading Association conference papers selected for this publication focus on the problems of teaching reading to the disadvantaged. The learner's background in language and experience, the teacher's goals and measures of potential and achievement, and the school's adjustment of program and instruction are all factors that affect successful learning for disadvantaged students and are represented in the publication. The selected papers are divided into five categories: general considerations, urban classroom applications, some rural applications, problems of bilingual children, and basic adult education.
