Focus on Reading; A Report of the Consortia Reading Specialist Conference (Washington, D.C., November 7-9, 1973).
Institute for Services to Education, Inc., Washington, DC.
As a part of the Institute for Services to Education's (ISE) continuing effort to revise the curriculum and pedagogy of the Thirteen-College Curriculum Program (TCCP), the English staff of ISE brought reading specialists from the consortia schools together during the 1972 summer conference to examine the relationship of reading to TCCP. An outgrowth of that conference was the Washington Reading Conference, which brought together reading specialists from the Eight- and Five-College Consortia. This publication records the highlights of that conference: "About the Institute for Services to Education"; "About the Thirteen-College Curriculum Program"; "The Relationship of reading to TCCP," which presents talks given by the president, the vice-president, and the senior program associate, English, of ISE; "Consortia Reading Concerns as Expressed by Reading Specialists," which presents some of the major concerns of college reading specialists with their college students; and "Presentations by Special Consultants," which presents a talk on college reading curricula for black students and one on reading and linguistics. In addition, the "Appendices" present two reports on reading in the ISE English program and a list of conference staff members, consultants, and participants. (WR)
