Reading and the Individual: Proceedings of a Symposium.
Lee, Helen Clara, Ed.
Excerpts from the addresses of 14 symposium contributors are presented. Relevant to the theme "Reading and the Individual," the necessity for encouraging creativity in learning and in teaching was stressed in three articles, and the threat to the individual's freedoms posed by today's society was discussed in one article. Creativity in writing and language use was particularly encouraged. Ways of using the everyday experiences and current interests of young people to stimulate intellectual inquiry and language activity are described in another article. Various instructional programs and activities are described, including bibliotherapy, a simplified phonemic alphabet, creative pupil construction, physical training, vocabulary enrichment, and basal readers in grade 1. Proposals for the role of reading specialists, reading centers, and reading committees in each school were suggested as the directions the field will take toward improved reading instruction in the coming decade.
