Help for the Reading Teacher: New Directions in Research.
Page, William D., Ed.
This book is designed to be a bridge between teachers and research in such topics as the cloze procedure, readability formulas, miscue analysis, reading strategies, informal reading inventories, and concepts and reading in the content areas. "Children's Behavior While Reading" by H. Robinson serves as a bridge between Huey's early beginning and contemporary theory and research. "Oral Reading Analysis: A View of the Reading Process" by C. Burke and "Reading Strategy Lessons; Expanding Reading Effectiveness" by Y. Goodman both discuss the reading process as seen through miscue analysis. "The Relationship of Beginning Reading Instruction and Miscue Patterns" by J. DeLawter looks at patterns of miscues in children who have received different kinds of reading instruction. "A Different Look at Reading in the Content Areas" by K. Carlson looks at the differences in miscues produced in reading different content materials. "Literacy in the Classroom" by J. Bormuth discusses readability of texts and the pupils' ability to comprehend textual materials. "Auditory Discrimination: Differences versus Deficits" by P. Williams reports on research that isolates linguistic elements. And "Use of Informal Reading Inventories" by W. Page and R. Barr discusses the informal reading inventory. (WR)
