Reading: Trends and Challenges. What Research Says to the Teacher.
Intended to help reading educators keep their teaching practices and goals up to date, this booklet examines current reading instruction and assesses the state of reading research and trends. Following a brief discussion of the meaning of reading and literacy, a section on the status of reading discusses how well children read today and whether the teaching practices of the past are really the answer to today's reading problems. The next section, on research on teaching reading, gives a historical overview of reading research trends, discusses the research focus on comprehension and its implications for teaching, and examines the critical role of the teacher in reading instruction. A bibliography concludes the booklet. (HTH)
