Processes in Reading Comprehension.
Ransom, Grayce A.
This examination of the processes in reading comprehension is divided into seven categories. "Theoretical Foundations" reviews some of the research conducted by Bruner, Piaget, and Bloom in the areas of cognition or comprehension processes of young children. "Development of a Spiraling Reading Curriculum" examines a spiraling taxonomy of reading skills and appreciations based on an emphasis on the interrelatedness of the four communication processes of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. "Background of the Research Design" discusses conceptual vocabulary, linguistic comprehension, cognitive and affective comprehension, early comprehension skills reinforcement, comprehension through discussion based on literature listening, and comprehension assessment--readiness level."Field Testing a Spiraling Reading Curriculum" discusses validating group testing for assessment, experimental classrooms, and the total spiraling diagnostic-prescriptive model. "The Research Design: A Study of Comprehension Processes in a School with a Spiraling, Diagnostic-Prescriptive Reading Curriculum" presents a research study conducted in a suburban area near Los Angeles, the results (with seven tables of findings), and conclusions and recommendations. A bibliography is included. (WR)
