Inchworm, Inchworm: Persistent Problems in Reading Education.
McCullough, Constance M., Ed.
The papers in this volume represent thoughts about the state of the art of teaching reading (with an emphasis on persistent problems) of many recognized authorities in the field of reading education. Eight of the articles were originally presented at a joint Reading Hall of Fame and International Reading Association (IRA) symposium at the IRA Convention in 1977. The book is divided into five sections with several articles on each topic. Writers in the section on a more literate society are David B. Tyack, Leo Fay, J. E. Merritt, and Keith J. Henderson. Writers represented in the section on the media and the reading teacher are Edgar Dale, Nancy Larrick, and Joanne E. Bernstein. Writers who contributed to the section on learning disabilities/reading disabilities are E. Jennifer Monaghan, Robert Karlin, Albert J. Harris, A. Sterl Artley, and Russell G. Stauffer. Authors of the articles on important components in reading education are Margaret Early, Marilyn Jager Adams, Richard C. Anderson, Dolores Durkin, John Downing, Kenneth S. Goodman, Yetta M. Goodman, S. Jay Samuels, Harry Singer, and George D. Spache. A final section on the reading consultant contains an article coauthored by Larry J. Mikulecky, Patricia L. Anders, Linda Ramig, and Norma Rogers. (MKM)
