College Reading Instruction as Reflected by Current Reading Textbooks.
Wood, Nancy V.
Journal of College Reading and Learning, v27 n3 p79-95 Spr 1997
Contrasts the traditional method of teaching college reading, which is based on behaviorist theory, with the modern model, which is based on psycholinguistic theory. Categorizes 20 current, popular reading textbooks as traditional, modern, or mixed. Argues that psycholinguistic theory will dominate in the next century, not only as a theory for reading but also for writing. (TB)
