Schantz, Maria E.; Brunner, Joseph F.
Addressing the needs and concerns of educators, parents, and others interested in the development of reading programs for children, this guide contains 1,032 annotations of resources that focus on the major issues in reading and reading instruction in public schools in the United States. The guide is divided into five major parts, beginning with a theoretical orientation spanning almost 100 years of reading research and reading theory. The other four sections provide annotations of resources on children's literature, adolescent literature, diagnosis and remediation, bilingualism (texts and programs), law, leisure, and literacy. An appendix provides information on professional journals that help teachers keep abreast of current and emerging trends, research, and practice in reading. Three indexes list the citations by author, title, and subject. (RL)
