Claremont Reading Conference 40th Yearbook: A Little Revolution Now and Then.
Douglass, Malcolm P., Ed.
The theme of this conference defined reading as the process of creating meaning for all sensed stimuli; reading is a broad form of behavior, not limited to interacting with the written forms of human language. With this definition as a foundation, the articles in this bicentennial report develop a phrase taken from one of Thomas Jefferson's letters, "a little revolution now and then," in an attempt to creatively approach the reading task. Topics include reading readiness; testing; innovative approaches to reading instruction; the relationship between reading and speech; the content, the use of humor, and folklore in children's literature; reading instruction for students with learning disabilities, for non-English speaking students, and for unmotivated learners; and the publishing industry, public policy, and educational evaluation in reference to the reading curriculum.
