Research on Reading in Secondary Schools. A Semi-Annual Report. Monograph Number 7.
Anders, Patricia L., Ed.
This monograph is one in a series of semiannual reports on research related to reading in secondary schools. The six papers in the monograph deal with the following topics: (1) the effect of reading level on the retention of propositions by secondary school remedial reading students; (2) the ambiguity of the term "significance" in research, which necessitates some measure of association (correlation) in addition to statistical significance tests; (3) an analysis and a position statement on the training of teachers in secondary school reading; (4) an approach to analyzing reading comprehension that combines skills areas and concept level questions; (5) a basic teaching strategy (the language shaping paradigm) for improving language, comprehension, and thought; and (6) reading comprehension of anaphoric syntactic structures by bilingual Vietnamese high school students.
