A Synthesis of Research on Reading with Recommendations for Instruction in Georgia Schools.
Hall, MaryAnne; And Others
Intended for use in the planning of reading programs for Georgia schools, this research review was undertaken to assist in identifying knowledge about reading and to derive implications for reading instruction within the state's schools. The report is organized into six sections. The first deals with the elementary level and covers the areas of prereading and beginning reading, instructional methods, comprehension, vocabulary, and word analysis. The two sections dealing with middle and secondary levels include discussions of comprehension, reading study strategies, content area reading, reading rate, vocabulary development and word analysis, instructional procedures, and readability. The fourth section covers research on corrective and remedial reading and emphasizes the extent of reading problems, identification of reading disabilities, corrective/remedial techniques, and problems in the literature on corrective/remedial reading. The fifth section deals with research on literary experiences, student attitudes, and self-concept, and the final section covers administration and organization of reading programs, including grouping practices, student promotion and retention, characteristics of effective reading programs, parents and reading, and teacher education. The report concludes with 19 recommendations for the development of effective reading instruction in Georgia schools. (FL)
