Reading Research and Development at the National Institute of Education.
Smith, Marshall S.
This paper describes the activities of the National Institute of Education (NIE) in reading research and development with particular emphasis on the Essential Skills Program. The Essential Skills Program's purpose is to aid all children in obtaining skills necessary to function in society. The paper is divided into three categories: activities funded prior to Fiscal Year 1974, present new initiatives, and future plans. The contents include "Past History," which discusses some of the activities of NIE which were transferred from the Office of Education and the Office of Educational Opportunity, activities that originated in the Field-Initiated competition in Fiscal Year 1973, and issues suggested by the review of existing projects; "Present Activities," which looks at some of the new initiatives of the Essential Skills Program in the reading area, areas in basic research emphasized by a summer study group, and three other new activities that have also received high priority; and "The Future," which discusses the partnership that it is hoped will develop between NIE, researchers, and school practitioners.
