The adolescent views himself; a psychology of adolescence by Ruth May Strang( Book )

15 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In spite of the numerous authoritative and comprehensive books on adolescence, one most important area of adolescence has been neglected: the ways in which adolescents perceive themselves and their world. This is so important because the concepts which adolescents form of themselves and of the world in relation to themselves exert a strong influence on their behavior. Even if an adolescent's perception is faulty, i.e., does not accord with the way adults perceive him, it is nonetheless real; it produces real results. Individuals respond to the situation-as-they-perceive-it. The extensive original data in this book consist of adolescents' own statements of their attitudes and values, their activities and relationships, their problems of growing up. These detailed original descriptions and comments show how adolescents perceive themselves, the world in which they live, the future, and other matters related to their development. They serve as convincing evidence of individuality; they represent the thoughts and feelings of many individual adolescents. These original data are supplemented and interpreted by information gained from previous research and by insights from psychological literature. Against this background, the uniqueness of each adolescent, as he perceives himself, as well as common characteristics, becomes evident. The focus of this book is on the manifold ways in which adolescents perceive themselves in the psychological, social, and physical setting in which they are growing up. In other words, this book attempts to describe the unique transitional stage between childhood and adulthood largely through the eyes of young people themselves: how they view themselves and their world, the developmental tasks to be accomplished during this period, and the kind of learning conditions and guidance they would like to have"--Preface.

Reading diagnosis and remediation by Ruth May Strang( Book )

11 editions published between 1968 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph includes an extensive review and evaluation of the research literature and offers teachers and clinicians background for understanding reading diagnosis, the correlates and causes of reading disabilities, diagnostic techniques, and remediation. The following topics are discussed: (1) the nature and levels of diagnosis, (2) the characteristics and conditions related to reading achievement and disability, (3) severe reading diabilities, (4) diagnostic techniques, (5) diagnosing special groups, (6) remediation, and (7) trends, needs, and future directions in diagnosis and remediation. There is a growing emphasis on early diagnosis, differential diagnosis, behavioral approach, perception, and learning modalities. However, teachers and clinicians must be helped to improve their competence in using diagnostic instruments and results, in observing student behavior, and selecting the most appropriate teaching and guidance procedures. Self-diagnosis through introspective-retrospective verbalization should be encouraged. More extensive case studies and more research on the effectiveness of certain teaching procedures with certain individuals under certain conditions should be conducted. This monograph is accompanied by an extensive bibliography and a list of reading tests. (Ns)
