Literacy for Diverse Learners: Promoting Reading Growth at All Levels.
Johns, Jerry L., Ed.
These 14 papers on literacy from International Reading Association conventions provide practical strategies and insights into factors which must be considered in programs for illiterates. Each section begins with focus questions to aid the reader in acquiring the basic intent of the articles. The three papers in section 1 deal with the issues of dialect, reading materials for black students, and bilingualism. Section 2 includes two articles which explore the research on intelligence and sex factors as they relate to reading achievement. Section 3 describes two programs for preventing reading difficulties of young children. Section 4 presents three programs that have been used with remedial readers, and section 5 contains a focus on research and programs for a variety of adult learners. Included at the end of each section is a selected bibliography of recently published and readily available books and articles for further learning. (SW)
