Reading for the Seventies: An International Challenge.
Smith, Nila Banton
Possibilities for change and innovations due to technological and intellectual advancement are viewed as they might occur in the seventies. (1) Information storage by microphotography and computer will make possible greater collections in extremely small physical spaces. (2) Biological and biochemical advances will bring greater understanding of human physical processes which in turn will make possible greater learning. (3) Revised concepts of readiness will result in better use of children's abilities. (4) Methodology will be studied in relation to technology, and advancements in one will bring improvement in the other. It was concluded that one thing seems certain--reading will serve a definite and important function in the society of the seventies. It was further felt that there will continue to be practical and pleasurable needs for the development of reading skills and that reading teachers will have an increased obligation to meet these needs. A bibliography is included. (MS)
