An Observation of Reading Programs within Selected Countries around the World.
Gloger, Maxwell T.
This dissertation discusses specific aspects of reading programs in thirteen selected countries: England, The Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel, Iran, India, Nepal, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. Chapters examine such topics as present educational policies, teacher training, native language, reading methods, research in reading, remedial reading education, sex attitudes, audio-visual materials, and special schools. The purpose of this research, which was conducted from June 1972 to May 1973, was to study the various methods used in teaching children to read in both primary and secondary schools. The study was carried out by use of a comprehensive questionnaire and interviewing on a one-to-one basis. It was noted that there was as wide a diversity in reading methodology among countries as there was within one country. It was observed that many innovative methods used in the classroom in other countries could be utilized in the United States. (Author/TS)
