Theoretical models and processes of reading by Harry Singer( Book )

91 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first section of this two-part collection of articles contains six papers and their discussions read at a symposium on Theoretical Models and Processes of Reading. The papers cover the linguistic, perceptual, and cognitive components involved in reading. The models attempt to integrate the variables that influence the perception, recognition, comprehension, and utilization of printed stimuli. Affective factors influencing these variables in both acquisition and performance are included. The final paper in the symposium presents a brief review of the literature on theoretical models in reading and draws implications for teaching and research from several models selected to represent the reading development continuum from kindergarten through college. The second part of this volume represents published papers on theories and processes of reading. Included among these are: (1) "The Substrata-Factor Theory of Reading: Some Experimental Evidence"; (2) "a Developmental Model of Speed of Reading in Grades Three through Six"; (3) "a Theory of Language, Speech, and Writing"; (4) "Reading: a Psycholinguistic Guessing Game"; (5) "The Reading Competency Model"; "The Nature of the Reading Process"; and (7) "Learning to Read."

Teaching children to read and write : becoming an influential teacher by Robert B Ruddell( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to include a broad base of information about how children acquire and develop literacy, this book discusses the knowledge that is necessary to be an influential teacher of reading and writing. Each chapter in the book begins and ends with a "Double Entry Journal" (DEJ)--an interactive strategy designed to stimulate thinking and to draw upon previous experience and knowledge base. The before-reading dej provides a focus on the chapter topic and activates prior knowledge, while the after-reading dej builds on that knowledge but combines it with the new ideas and strategies introduced in the chapter. Each chapter ends with a concise summary of the material in the chapter. Chapters in the book are: (1) Becoming an Influential Reading and Writing Teacher; (2) Coming to Know the Reading and Writing Processes: Understanding Meaning Making; (3) Understanding the Beginning Steps: Early Reading and Writing Development; (4) Developing Reading Comprehension: Using Instructional Strategies to Develop Higher Level Thinking; (5) Building Vocabulary and Comprehension Connections; (6) Using Literature and Reader Response to Enhance Attitudes and Comprehension; (7) Guiding Children's Writing; (8) Using Word Analysis Strategies to Develop Reader Independence: Transforming Print to Meaning; (9) Developing Children's Literacy Abilities in Content Areas; (10) Understanding Language, Cultural, and Achievement Diversity in the Classroom; (11) Evaluating Children's Progress in Reading and Writing; (12) Examining Instructional Approaches: Basal Reader, Literature-Based, Whole Language, and Supplementary Programs; (13) Organizing and Managing Classrooms for Literacy Learning; and (14) Continuing Professional Change and Growth: Reaching the Influential Goal.

Accountability and reading instruction: critical issues by Robert B Ruddell( Book )

6 editions published between 1973 and 1978 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intent of the Commission on Reading of the National Council of Teachers of English in developing this group of articles was to provide insight into critical issues related to accountability and reading instruction. The initial presentation by James Laffey develops a brief historical analysis of educational accountability, followed by a discussion of the alternatives and problems that must be understood in developing an accountability system. Richard Hodges identifies the nature and sources of behavioral objectives as he examines assumptions related to goals of instruction, measurement, and the content and methodology of learning. Kenneth Goodman's paper on testing concerns reading tests, design problems in constructing reading tests, and abuses of tests. Advantages as well as limitations and disadvantages of performance contracting are discussed by Mary Galvan. Galvan concludes her discussion by identifying needs and making recommendations useful in developing curriculum-oriented guidelines for schools interested in performance contracting. The concluding discussion by Harold Herber identifies a range of critical issues based on the preceding discussions. (Author/WR)

The dynamics of reading by David Harris Russell( Book )

7 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central concern of this book is the effect of reading from the perspective of Holbook Jackson's reference to "the reader as artist". Part One, Literary Backgrounds, establishes the literary and psychological framework central to the book. The second part, Research Backgrounds, focuses on (1) investigating the reading process and specific factors influencing personal response and (2) synthesizing and interpreting empirical research and authoritative data on the effects of reading. The final section, Three Applications, has as its initial focus the application of the earlier discussion to curriculum development. A second focus, growing out of the first, deals with an overview of literary programs and experiences for young people through college age. This text should be of value to upper-division and graduate students of reading and literature. It should also serve as a resource for teachers of teachers and scholars who are constantly concerned with the impact and effects of reading. (Author/DH)

The effect of four programs of reading instruction, with varying emphasis on the regularity of grapheme-phoneme correspondences and the relation of language structure to meaning on achievement in first grade reading by Robert B Ruddell( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary objective of the study was to investigate the effect upon word recognition and reading comprehension skills of four reading programs. These programs varied in (1) the degree of regularity of grapheme-phoneme correspondences programed into the vocabulary presented and (2) the emphasis on language structure as related to meaning. Four exploratory questions were developed to study the relationship between the independent background variables of mental age, socioeconomic status, sex, and chronological age and the dependent variables of word recognition and reading comprehension. Students from 24 first-grade classrooms were given 2 existing reading programs and 2 programs developed to meet the specific needs of this study. It was concluded that the first-grade reading programs possessing a high degree of consistency in grapheme-phoneme correspondences produced significantly higher (1) word reading, (2) word study drills, and (3) regular word identification achievement than those programs offering little provision for consistent correspondences. The need for more carefully designed longitudinal reading research studies was discussed. (Gd)
