Claremont Reading Conference. Thirty-Fourth Yearbook.
Douglass, Malcolm P., Ed.
This collection of 19 articles included in the 34th Yearbook of the Claremont Reading Conference focuses on the theme "Reading and School Life," with specific emphasis on how the quality of school experiences affects the reader and the development of the reading process. The permanent conference theme is "Reading is the Process of Making Discriminative Responses." One group of articles focuses on problems of relevancy of the real world to books, teachers, and teaching techniques. The reading experiences and difficulties of children from minority groups and ghetto areas are dealt with in five other articles. Four selections deal primarily with analyses of why people read and how positive attitudes toward reading are invoked. Also included is a series of articles on several psycholinguistic, scientific, and experimental factors related to reading. The presentation of the Recognition of Merit award to E. B. White and his response are included, as are brief biographical notations for each contributing author. (VJ)
