Summary of Investigations Relating to Reading, July 1, 1974, to June 30, 1975.
Weintraub, Samuel, Ed.; And Others
Summaries of 558 reports of reading research published between July 1, 1974, and June 30, 1975, are collected in this volume. The research studies are categorized into six major areas, four of which have been further subcategorized. The majority of studies reported were classified into the physiology and psychology of reading area. Large subdivisions under that major category include the following: visual perception, auditory perception, reading and language abilities, and factors relating to reading disability. Under the teaching of reading category, the testing subcategory remains one of the larger divisions. A large grouping of studies in the sociology of reading is concerned with the content analysis of newspapers, books, texts, and other printed materials. A listing of other bibliographies and reviews of reading research appears as the first major category of the present summary. Reviews are classified under specific subcategories or placed under a miscellaneous subheading. A 558-item annotated bibliography is keyed to the written text. (Author/KS)
