Reading as a Thinking Process; Proceedings of the Annual Reading Conference (5th, Indiana State University, Terre Haute, June 12-13, 1975).
Waterman, David C.; Gibbs, Vanita M.
Thinking skills in children, effectively developed through reading, were emphasized at this reading conference. Three types of thinking skills linked to reading are: decoding symbols from the printed page, seeking factual meaning through recall; reading interpretively, understanding cause and effect reasoning or seeking the main idea of sentences; and creative-critical reading, examining the author's intent or language or feeling the mood of a story. In this booklet, the techniques and ideas for developing thinking skills and abilities are described in the following presentations: "Personkind, Meaning Maker" by William H. Hoth; "What Is Poetry? Who Cares?" by Sheron Dailey Pattison; "Private Logic in Children's Behavior and Thinking" by Reece Chaney; "Readiness Is a Thinking Process" by Jessica Welch; "The Think Tank of Reading or Is the Barrel Full?" by Robert Pabst; "Thinking Skills and Reading" by Richard Biberstine; "Systematic Approach to Reading Improvement (Sari)" by Geneva Ross; and "Language and Thought: Contributions to the Reading Process" by Eldonna L. Evertts. (JM)
