Reflections on Two Days of Listening about Reading.
Comments about the 11 papers presented at the June 1976 Pittsburgh conference on the theory and practice of beginning reading instruction are presented in this paper. In surveying these presentations, the paper discusses four content areas: particular theories about the reading process; problems in learning to read of poor, retarded, bilingual, and nonlateralized persons; systematic programs for beginning reading instruction; and the evaluation/effectiveness of reading instruction. In general, the paper concludes that while the conference was informative it was merely an indication that many problems in reading research and instruction must be solved, particularly in the area of evaluation. An attached transcript provides an audience discussion that followed presentation of the paper. (RL)
