Reading: A Human Right and A Human Problem.
Staiger, Ralph C., Ed.; Andresen, Oliver, Ed.
A selection of papers presented at the Second World Congress on Reading held in Copenhagen in August, 1968, reflects the views of educators from 25 countries on facets of reading instruction. Central to the Congress was its stress on education as a human right. The raising of literacy goals and the roles played by various agencies in accomplishing this are themes which appear throughout the speeches. Topics discussed in papers in the collection include beginning reading, reading comprehension, preparation of teaching materials, descriptions of programs, teacher education, and reading problems.
