Reading's New Horizons.
McCullough, Constance M.
This paper gives an overview of the program for the Fifth International Reading Association World Congress on Reading and reviews some of the works and research of educational authorities and how these affect reading. The contents include: "Symposium A," which addresses cognitive functions required for reading, comprehension, and how ability and progress can be evaluated; "Symposium B," which deals with literature and the reader; "Symposium C," which is concerned with programs for early intervention, the roles of instructional personnel, and developments in teacher education; "Symposia D and E," which deal with sequence of learning and materials, oral reading diagnosis, teacher strategies for the improvement of reading comprehension, and individual instruction; "Working Parties A, B, and C," which are closed seminars related to language problems and literacy problems; and "Straws in the Wind," which discusses reading in other countries, reading research on comprehension, problem solving, expectations for the reader, concept development, children's writing, and the competent reader.
