A Psycholinguistic Basis for Reading Improvement in the Secondary School.
Miller, Evelyn Frances
The purpose of this study was to develop guidelines and to construct a model which would show the various facets of a secondary school reading program and which could be followed in the development of such a program. The procedures for research included a review of the literature, the development of a set of guidelines and a model for a reading program, the selection of a panel of specialists to evaluate the model, and the revision of the guidelines in accordance with the recommendations of the panel. The conclusions of the study were that secondary schools should proceed to improve their reading programs on the basis of psycholinguistic theories of reading instruction; secondary schools should hire consultants to work with trained content area teachers; and evaluation techniques should include assessing the affective areas, measuring success in school subjects, and using followup studies, in addition to the use of test scores.
