Annual Summary of Investigations Relating to Reading, July 1, 1990 to June 30, 1991.
Weintraub, Sam, Ed.
This annotated bibliography summarizes approximately 600 reports of reading research identified between July 1, 1990, and June 30, 1991. The research studies described in the book are categorized into six areas: (1) summaries of reading research; (2) teacher preparation and practice; (3) sociology of reading; (4) physiology and psychology of reading; (5) the teaching of reading; and (6) reading of atypical learners. Studies in the book are subcategorized under five of the six main categories (category 1 is the exception since it consists of general reviews only), and within any one subcategory appear a number of loosely related studies. The majority of studies reported are in the physiology and psychology of reading area and the largest subdivisions within that category are (as in the past), Comprehension Research and Factors Related to Reading Disability. A list of journals monitored and an author index conclude the document. (RS)
