Reading Difficulties: Diagnosis, Correction, and Remediation.
Durr, William K., Ed.
The purpose of this collection of selected papers is to provide the reading teacher and the classroom teacher with usable information concerning remedial reading and its diagnosis and correction. The first section, concerned with the why of reading problems, reviews the various factors associated with reading difficulties. The second section presents a series of papers concerned with informal diagnostic procedures. The history of informal inventories is reviewed, and strengths and weaknesses are analyzed. The third section contains papers related to the correction of reading problems in the classroom, including those of inner city schools. The fourth section discusses remedial programs that are the province of the reading specialist working outside of the classroom. (Author/WR)
