Invitational Addresses, 1965.
Gates, Arthur I.; And Others
The full texts of invitational addresses given at the 1965 International Reading Association (IRA) Convention in Detroit, Michigan, by six recipients of IRA citation awards are presented. Gates suggests steps IRA should take to revive and redirect reading research. McCallister discusses the implications of the changing and expanding vocabulary of professional literature and the need to compile and clarify these terms. Smith traces the influences which are responsible for the present status of American reading instruction from the early period of religious emphasis to the present period of expanding knowledge and technical revolution. Strang outlines the reading process and stresses the need to recognize the interacting aspects of product, prerequisites, process, and procedures, in order to understand an individual's reading development. Tinker describes how children perceive words as they begin to learn to read and how they progress to more mature perception. Witty discusses some aspects of reading instruction for the disadvantaged. Each address is accompanied by a brief sketch of the recipient's accomplishments. Some bibliographies are included. (This document previously announced as ED 017 407.) (NS)
