Vision/Visual Perception: An Annotated Bibliography.
Weintraub, Sam, Comp.; Cowan, Robert J., Comp.
An update and modification of "Vision-Visual Discrimination" published in 1973, this annotated bibliography contains entries from the annual summaries of research in reading published by the International Reading Association (IRA) since then. The first large section, "Vision," is divided into two subgroups: (1) "Visually Handicapped" and (2) "Visual Acuity and Efficiency." This section might be of use to individuals in the field of optometry and ophthalmology, school personnel interested in the relationship of visual acuity and efficiency to learning to read or to reading problems, and persons who work with the blind or visually impaired. The booklet's second major section, "Visual Perception," contains a wide assortment of diversified research on different topics loosely related to visual perception, including articles dealing with visual training programs, visual memory, visual discrimination, and visual perceptual testing. This section would probably be of value to individuals making curricular decisions, particularly those related to kindergarten readiness, beginning reading programs, and remedial reading instruction.
