The Quest for Competency in Teaching Reading.
Klein, Howard A., Ed.
This monograph includes a selected group of papers which were presented at IRA's Atlantic City convention (1971). The collection has been subdivided into three groupings. The first, "Writers, Teachers, and Children," discusses the intrinsic value of literature and its effect upon the reader. The second, "Teachers, Programs, and Children," deals with the quest for a sound, sensitive (but elusive) total reading program aimed at improving skills and attitudes. And the third, "Some Teaching Skills and Techniques," provides a porpourri that probes areas teachers should strengthen to be effective reading teachers, that presents research showing how skills can be taught efficiently, and that describes innovations that may make it possible to advance reading instruction to an optimum level for everyone.
