Orientation to Reading.
Carton, Aaron S.
This book is concerned with tracing the history and logic of the psycholinguistic orientation toward reading, and is directed at reading teachers and teachers of language skills and communication processes in general. Its underlying theme is that reading is essentially a communicative process that can be fairly autonomously acquired when text constitutes an important part of the cultural ambiance of a child. The book is divided into seven chapters: (1) "Education and the Study of Language," (2) "Linguistics and Psycholinguistics," (3) "Learning to Talk," (4) "About Writing," (5) "Writing and Speech," and (6) "Psycholinguistic Theorization about Reading." Two epilogues conclude the book: (1) "A Reading Acquisition Device?" and (2) "On Human Literacy." (CLK)
