Handbook on Comparative Reading: An Annotated Bibliography and Some Viewpoints on University Courses in Comparative Reading.
Malmquist, Eve, Comp.
In an attempt to locate studies from various cultures and nations that would provide useful sources for university courses in comparative reading, this booklet provides annotated sources of international reading studies, as well as three articles on comparative reading. Following an introduction, the first part of the booklet begins with an article on the value of comparative reading. This is followed by the bibliography, which is divided into sections on (1) methodology of comparative education and comparative reading, (2) studies and descriptive reports, and (3) reviews and descriptions of the state of the art regarding research and/or the teaching of reading. The second part of the booklet contains two viewpoints on university courses in comparative reading, including an example of a cross-national study on primary reading. (HTH)
