Proceedings of Fall Forum in Reading (2nd Annual, November 18, 1967).
Texas Woman's Univ., Denton.
Included in this publication are the following two presentations: (1) Characteristics of Children with Reading Problems and (2) Prevention of Reading Problems. Also included is a section called Viewpoints, which consists of questions and answers from discussion groups. Classified as learning characteristics are variability of performance, memory deficits, discriminatory or perceptual deficits, and need for repetition; the emotional characteristic described is anxiety. Three major factors in the prevention of reading problems are pointed out: (1) The concept of readiness which is not synonomous with maturation is viewed as a result of interaction between maturation and learning and is defined in terms of skills the child is lacking. (2) Thinking must be in terms of the school taking the responsibility when the child fails to learn. (3) The principle that there is no best method of teaching all children to read can result in matching method and child. Some of the discussion questions dealt with grouping, junior high school retarded reacers, the language experience approach, and personal aspects of reading. References are included. (DH)
