Teaching Reading as Concept Development: Emphasis on Affective Thinking.
Henry, George H.
The purposes of this monograph are to reveal how the language arts teacher at any level of instruction might go about the teaching of reading as concept development and to suggest that this method of teaching reading be made part of the preparation of both the reading teacher and the English teacher. The monograph is composed of two parts. Part 1, which presents the theoretical aspects, discusses (1) the need for a general theory of concept development and (2) establishing the theory of concept development, including the logical process of conceptualization, joining as a logical process, structure as process, feeling and cognition, and contrast as separation and exclusion. Part 2, which looks at the practical aspects, discusses reading readiness, the spiral curriculum, relationships, reading as relation, reading as structuring, and suggested future research in reading as affective thinking.
