The Road to Effective Reading.
Latham, William, Ed.
Papers presented at the tenth annual study conference of the United Kingdom Reading Association, held at Totley-Thornbridge College of Education, Sheffield, are included in this report. The conference theme centered on the proposition that learning to read is a long-term developmental process beginning in preschool life and language experience and reaching fruition in the study skills of the effective adult reader. Topics for papers include early language development, reading readiness, beginning reading, the reading curriculum for the middle years of schooling, reading comprehension factors, teacher education, silent reading, listening skills, study skills, reading habits and interests of adults, reading achievement, and the Right to Read program in the United States of America.
