Individualized Reading: Readings.
Duker, Sam, Comp.
The major portion of this book of readings contains selections from unpublished materials such as academic theses and other research reports which generally are not conveniently available. The aim has been to select passages which tell about actual procedures used in individualized reading rather than passages giving opinions for or against it. Many of the selections were written by classroom teachers who are more likely to be directly involved in such an approach. The chapter titles give an indication of this emphasis on practice; some of them are as follows: Individualized Reading in the Primary Grades, Individualizing Reading Practices, Individualized Reading Procedures, Individual Differences and Individualized Reading, The Teacher of Individualized Reading, The Librarians Role in Individualized Reading, and Evaluation and Results. The author expresses the hope that through reading this book teachers will be induced to try the individualized approach to reading instruction. With a few exceptions the material was written within the decade of the sixties which makes it less likely that it would have been read previously by the users of this book. A comprehensive annotated bibliography on individualized reading by the same author may be found as document RE 003 608. (DH)
