Reading Research Quarterly, v12 n3 p239-565 1976-1977
This document summarizes 599 reports of reading research published between 1 July 1975 and 30 June 1976. The research studies are categorized in six major areas, four of which have been subcategorized. The majority of studies reported were classified in the area of the physiology and psychology of reading. Large subdivisions under that major category include the following: visual perception, auditory perception, reading and language abilities, and factors related to reading disability. In the teaching-of-reading category, the testing subcategory is one of the larger divisions. A large grouping of studies in the sociology-of-reading category 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 summary. Reviews are classified in specific subcategories or are placed under a miscellaneous subheading. Other categories are teacher preparation and practice and the reading of atypical learners. An annotated bibliography appears following the written text. (Author/MKM)
