Historical Sources in U.S. Reading Education, 1900-1970: An Annotated Bibliography.
Robinson, Richard D., Ed.
The teaching of reading today is based on a rich historical legacy, and although teaching methods and materials of the past frequently differed from those of today, there are still threads and themes that have been evident in reading education since the earliest days. This annotated bibliography celebrates the rich history of professional literature that today's reading educators have inherited. The bibliography, divided into 15 sections, spans more than 70 years of reading research and includes works selected as the most useful and relevant to those interested in the history of reading. Sections in the bibliography are: (1) General Works in Reading; (2) Summaries of Reading Research; (3) Reading Paradigms, Perception, and Word Recognition; (4) Oral and Silent Reading; (5) Vocabulary and Comprehension; (6) Readability and Legibility of Text; (7) Readiness; (6) Reading Disabilities and Remediation; (9) Reading Assessment; (10) Texts for Reading Instruction; (11) Professional References Related to the Teaching of Reading; (12) Reading Educators; (13) Writing; (14) Historical Dissertations in Reading Education; and (15) Yearbooks and Organizations of Interest to Reading Educators.
