A Critical Review of the Information Base for Current Assumptions Regarding the Status of Instruction and Achievement in Reading in the United States.
Corder, Reginald
Purposes and activities of the Targeted Research and Development Project No. 3 are described. The project seeks to identify and describe the national reading problem, methods of reading instruction, and the training of reading teachers. The project, a literature search, is designed to identify literature related to reading instruction, to develop a reliable and valid method for evaluating that literature, and to apply the method to the comprehensive body of identified research. Steps in the project include (1) a search of the literature in the ERIC system, Education Index, Psychological Abstracts, Sociological Abstracts, Dissertation Abstracts, government publications, and a number of other sources, expected to identify approximately 1,200 reports; (2) a review of the documents by a preliminary selection committee; (3) a critical review by a second committee of qualified and trained readers; and (4) a cross validation of the literature to provide analytical summaries of aspects of reading for use by various audiences. Forms used in identifying and analyzing documents are included. (MS)
