Smith, Nila Banton, Ed.
The manuscripts resulting from the seventeen different current issues in reading that were discussed at the thirteenth Annual International Reading Association Convention in Boston in 1968 are published in this volume. The topics include reading research, content area reading, speed reading, comprehension, reading skill sequence, reading instruction for the disadvantaged, visual and auditory modalities, programed instruction, dyslexia, teacher preparation, theories of remedial reading, and several specific methods of reading instruction. For each issue an objective paper that discusses the topic and presents research in regard to it, a pro paper that provides arguments and research in favor of the topic, and a con paper that offers limitations of the issue are given. The compiler-editor, Nila Banton Smith, presents a concluding chapter summarizing all of the many issues discussed and providing one view of the future of reading. (TO)
