Rasnak, Mary Ann; And Others
This annotated bibliography, a project undertaken by graduate students enrolled in a comparative reading course at Northern Illinois University, supplements and updated E. Malmquist's annotated bibliography, "Handbook on Comparative Reading." The bibliography contains 188 annotations drawn from a range of articles, chapters, and texts addressing cross-cultural, cross-national education from various philosophical and pedagogical viewpoints. The bibliography is divided into 9 sections: (1) "Adult Literacy in the Third World"; (2) "Social, Cultural and Economic Issues"; (3) "Beginning Reading around the World"; (4) "Reading in Africa"; (5) "Reading in China"; (6) "Reading in Great Britain"; (7) "Reading in Japan"; (8) "Reading in Scandinavia"; and (9) Reading in the Soviet Union." At the end of each section there is a cross reference to other abstracts that relate to the respective section. In a few cases, sources are abstracted twice to reflect the subject or country serving as the section head. An appendix of a course reference list is attached. (MS)
