Educational Factors Involved in Reading Disability.
Otto, Wayne
A framework for organizing instruction in reading is discussed which includes the following objectives: identification of essential skills in reading, a statement of objectives, assessment, identification of appropriate teaching/learning activities, and evaluation. The objective of instruction is to focus on what the teacher wants the children to learn, how he can tell whether they have learned it, how to go on with the teaching, and whether the outcome is what was desired. The major problem of reading research is arriving at an acceptable definition of "reading," but, whatever the definition, a number of other problems need to be solved before researchers can assume that adequate instruction in reading exists. Until this assumption can be made, research effort should not be dissipated in pursuing other than educational factors as causes of reading disability. (DI)
