This yearbook includes a summary of the research in reading that has been conducted in recent years, and also contains many ideas that have practical implications for the teacher in the classroom. The essays are divided into six major sections: research review, college and adult programs, teacher education, programs and practices, test materials, and research and theory. Included are essays on such topics as improving college reading and study programs by locating and critiquing research, subjective assessment of auto-instructional learning tasks in secondary and college reading materials, eye-movement photography as an instructional tool, prevention of reading problems in higher education, internal reading flexibility patterns among university undergraduates, reading programs in Illinois high schools, improving a school's reading achievement, children's ability to segment sentences into individual words, the use of prediction equations and computer simulation for identifying preferred sensory modality for training in reading, developmental changes in memory attributes of good and poor readers, and interest as a variable in word acquisition.
