Insights Into Why and How to Read.
Williams, Robert T., Ed.
Based upon the assumption that the teacher is the single most important factor in the development of reading skills, this volume provides information concerning different aspects of why citizens need to read and how teachers can aid in this process. Included in "why to read" are insights into the multifaceted aspects of communication, the influences of success and failure on self-development, and the selection and evaluation of children's literature. Included in "how to read" are insights into the English language; children's cognitive development; the teaching of word attack skills; and assessing, evaluating, and fostering comprehension development.
