A reprint of a classic review of research and research tends on reading that originally appeared in 1941 as the article "Reading" in the "Encyclopedia of Educational Research," this monograph sets forth the views of William S. Gray, an eminent reading educator and theorist. The 11 sections of the review discuss the following topics: (1) the sociology of reading; (2) the nature of reading and the basic processes involved; (3) interest in reading; (4) reading readiness; (5) the aims, organization, and time allotment of reading in the elementary school; (6) factors related to growth in reading; (7) the nature, content, and grade placement of reading materials; (8) teaching methods; (9) reading in the content fields; (10) diagnosis and remedial teaching; and (11) the hygiene of reading. In a foreword to Gray's monograph, Jeanne S. Chall discusses its history and background, and in his preface, John T. Guthrie summarizes Gray's life and career. (FL)
