National Reading Panel Regional Meeting Synthesis.
National Reading Panel, Bethesda, MD.
Discussing how the National Reading Panel is searching to gain valuable perspectives and insights from practitioners and other stakeholders engaged in the teaching and learning of reading, this paper considers insight from practitioners outside of the panel members. It reviews the major concepts discussed at five regional meetings of the National Reading Panel conducted May to July 1998. It discusses parameters of reading research and the teacher's involvement in research. The paper discusses effective reading instruction and considers the development from phonemic awareness to comprehension. It also discusses measures for professional development. A section is devoted to parent's involvement in learning to read and to special needs children, respectively. The paper concludes by discussing what the panel learned from local meetings. (SC)
