Beginning Reading.
Southgate, Vera
From among the papers the author has presented at various conferences and the articles she has written for different journals, nine were selected to form this book. They are all concerned with beginning reading, and each forms a chapter of the book. Chapter one, "Approaches to Beginning Reading in Great Britain," discusses background factors, beginning reading in practice, and the results of approaches to beginning reading. Chapter two, "Selecting an Approach to Teaching Reading," deals with teachers' interest in new approaches, criteria for judging new approaches, and deciding if a new approach is necessary. Chapter three, "The Importance of Structure in Beginning Reading," addresses reading in progressive infant classes and the need for structure. The arguments for and against early reading instruction are presented in Chapter four, "Early Reading." Part Two of the book, chapters five through eight, is concerned with the augmented alphabet and with i.t.a. Chapter nine, "Formulae for Beginning Reading Tuition," discusses terminology, reading progress, and implications for future research. (WR)
