What Research Tells Us About the Teaching of Reading.
Sheldon, William D.
A total of 39 research studies done during the period 1967 to 1970 are included in this review. Two of these are doctoral dissertations and the others are reported in journal articles. The overall concerns are the young child and elementary school children. The reviewed studies are divided into five categories: Pre-Reading Programs and Activities, Beginning Reading Instruction, Programs and Grouping Practices, Vocabulary and Word Analysis, and Reading Achievement and Some Correlates. The author concludes that a core of reading researchers who might develop important studies is still lacking. He contends that although there are a few individuals who have contributed continuously over the years, less than 20 percent of the studies come from experienced researchers in reading. A bibliography is included. (AW)
