The Third International Reading Symposium: Today's Child and Learning to Read.
Downing, John; Brown, Amy L.
The symposium theme of "Today's Child and Learning to Read" provides the focal point for the 12 papers included in this volume. Each is concerned with an individual area of reading and the relevance of that area to the needs of today's students. Nearly half the articles deal with specific current approaches to reading instruction and their usefulness with students. They include the linguistic approach, phonetic color reading, i.t.a., and programed reading. A second segment primarily treats the teacher's role and responsibilities in the instructional and testing process. Early reading, teaching the socially disadvantaged, thinking skill instruction, and readability measures are discussed, as well as specific kinds of reading tests and their function. Tables and references are included. (RW)
