Identification and Instruction of Children with Reading Disability. Second Annual Report to the Spencer Foundation.
Guthrie, John T.
This current annual report describes the progress made in the following aspects of the organizational plan; the identification of a model of reading which includes a description of subskills that may be present in skilled readers and are acquired by most normal readers, the construction of criterion referenced tests to measure each of these subskills, a comparison of normal and disabled readers in terms of their performance on the component subskills, and development of curricular procedures for disabled readers. The contents of the report include; "Overview of the Project," which discusses the organizational plan; "Model of Reading," which directs the reader to the model presented in the first annual report; "Measurement of Reading Subskills," which discusses the measuring instruments used, the areas of reading evaluated and the results obtained from the use of the measuring instruments; "Comparison of Normal and Disabled Readers," which discusses the learning hierarchies for good and poor readers, and an analysis of the comparative skills of normal and disabled readers; "Summary of Cognitive Deficiencies of Disabled Readers," which reviews several studies related to the cognitive deficiencies of disabled readers; "Affiliated Projects," which presents several research projects conducted in collaboration with the staff of the Spencer Foundation Project; and "Dissemination of Findings."
