Reading in Education: A Broader View.
Douglass, Malcolm P., Ed.
This book of readings selected from the Claremont Reading Conference proceedings of 1963-1971 reflect a broad view of reading and communication. Many of the papers are psycholinguistic or sociolinguistic in scope, centering on the language user, his society, and the immediacy of teaching or learning to read. A number of papers are concerned with relevancy to the needs of learners and stress the teacher's guidance and acceptance of reading as an integral part of the total school curriculum. Several papers state and explore the concepts that there is no one correct way of speaking English and that the teacher's largest contribution to the reading program might be sensitivity to, an acceptance of, and a real understanding of the learners' dialects. Other papers emphasize individualization of instruction and distinguishing between teaching reading and learning to read. (WR)
