Comprehension in Reading. An Annotated Bibliography.
Green, Richard T., Comp.
The fact that comprehension is a topic that ranges across many fields is shown by the variety of subjects and areas that are considered in this bibliography. Entries are arranged under the following eight sections: Cloze, Critical Reading and Creativity, Factors, Language, Readability, Skills, Theory, and Thinking. A few of the many articles published on the cloze technique, which now has a variety of applications in testing, in teaching, with the spoken word, and in linguistics among other fields, are referenced. The relatively vast literature on critical reading and creative reading is selectively sampled. The section on factors includes references to such factors as word analysis skills, interest, rate time intervals, materials, and evaluation and their relationship to comprehension. The depths of reading comprehension are explored and probed in the references contained under the section entitled Theory. Some of the references cited in the section Thinking deal with concept attainment, cognitive functioning, and problem solving as they are related to reading comprehension. References to listening comprehension are excluded because of extensive bibliographies already published. (Author/DH)
