Readability and Reading. An Annotated Bibliography. 1971 Revision.
Seels, Barbara, Comp.; Dale, Edgar, Comp.
An updated version of a bibliography of the same title published by the International Reading Association in 1966 is presented. The 1966 bibliography emphasized references from 1962 to 1965 and also included some early classic references. In the 1971 revision, emphasis is placed upon sources from the 1965 to 1970 period. The revised bibliography is selective, not comprehensive. Content of the bibliography is divided into the following sections: (1) General References on Readability, (2) Measuring of Readability, (3) Readability and Sentence Structure, (4) Readability and Vocabulary, (5) Readability and Literary Style, (6) Readability in Subject Area Materials, (7) Readability and Types of Learners, (8) Readability and Media, (9) Readability and Literacy Materials, and (10) Readability and Legibility. The bibliography contains 125 references which are alphabetized by author within each section. Complete citations and informative annotations are included. (Author/DH)
