Developing Comprehension Including Critical Reading.
Dawson, Mildred A., Comp.
This book is a compilation of selected papers on comprehension and critical reading that have appeared in the annual "Proceedings in Invitational Addresses, 1965," or have been published in the journals of the International Reading Association. The articles have been grouped under several headings: (1) the nature of comprehension in reading; (2) the developmental sequences and levels of comprehension as pupils progress from reading lines to reading between and beyond the lines; (3) the impact on reading which the nature of our American English language may have; (4) contextual clues as they apply to the reader's ability to grasp the ideas in passages; (5) barriers to comprehension; (6) instructional procedures; (7) critical reading; and (8) significantly related articles which do not fall exactly into any of the seven preceding categories and which have only an oblique relationship to comprehension. The book concludes with a selected bibliography of articles that have some relation to comprehension but do not deal directly with it. (Author/WR)
