Weintraub, Sam; And Others
Intended to help professionals remain knowledgeable about current research in reading and to serve as a relatively accessible bibliographic source of research on a specific topic, this annual report summarizes approximately 1,150 reports of reading research identified between July 1, 1983, and June 30, 1984. The summaries are arranged into six major categories. The first category lists other general bibliographies offering summaries of reading research. The second category presents summaries of studies concerned with teacher preparation and practice, while the third category contains summaries of reports dealing with the sociology of reading. The majority of reports appear in the fourth category, which deals with the physiology and psychology of reading. The fifth and sixth categories cover reports on the teaching of reading, and the reading of atypical learners. Concluding the document are a list of journals monitored for the summary (approximately 400) and an author index. (HTH)
