Reading and Concept Attainment, Highlights of the 1967 Pre-Convention Institutes.
Berg, Paul C., Ed.; George, John E., Ed.
The three papers presented in this publication examine in depth the thought and practices that currently prevail in the specialized areas of reading and concept attainment. Two of the papers deal with concept learning and the transformation of this knowledge into instructional guidelines. The third paper considers the importance o f concept attainment in reading and provides illustrations of teaching practices that should prove helpful to reading teachers. The teacher-learning factors involved are not only maturation and social interaction but also mental and physical action and the ability of self-regulation. References are included after each article. (BS)
