Reading Research.
Rhett, Nancy
This slide presentation first provides, in a concise form, background information on the Reading Excellence Act program authorized in 1998. It then presents a chart of fourth-grade reading achievement in 1998 from the National Assessment of Educational Progress. It also outlines some findings from reading research and lists the six dimensions of reading from the Reading Excellence Act. The presentation then focuses on appropriate reading skills for children to have from preschool through third grade, gives indicators of reading difficulties, and suggests what volunteer programs and extended learning programs can do. It concludes by listing resources--seven publications and three web sites. (NKA)
