Annual Summary of Investigations Relating to Reading, July 1, 1987 to June 30, 1988.
Weintraub, Sam, Ed.
Summarizing more than 800 reports of reading research identified between July 1, 1987, and June 30, 1988, this book categorizes the research studies into six major areas, five of which have been further subcategorized, with the majority of studies classified into the physiology and psychology of reading area. The major areas are as follows: (1) summaries of reading research (a listing of other general bibliographies of reading research); (2) teacher preparation and practice; (3) sociology of reading (the largest subcategory here being concerned with the content analysis of printed materials); (4) physiology and psychology of reading (large subdivisions here are comprehension research and factors related to reading disability); (5) the teaching of reading (with testing the largest subcategory); and (6) reading of atypical learners. A list of journals monitored for the summary and an author index conclude the book. (SR)
