In defense of good teaching : what teachers need to know about the "reading wars" by Kenneth S Goodman( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Defense of Good Teaching represents the whole language community's first concerted response to its attackers, revealing some disturbing truths in the reading wars: deliberate misrepresentation of ideas, about the role of the press, conflicting agendas played out in our schools, teachers and administrators marginalized for their beliefs, and commercial interests dressed up as scientific research. This alarming and enlightening book remains invaluable to teachers who want the means and strategies to respond to criticism, to analyze arguments and to defend their position

Encompassing his work in the psycholinguistics of reading, this book presents Kenneth Goodman's major papers focusing on miscue analysis, the theoretical model of the reading processes derived from it, and relevant research perspectives. Following an introduction to Goodman's works, the articles discuss the following topics: (1) the reading process, (2) theory and practice in the reading process, (3) the reading process as a psycholinguistic guessing game, (4) the linguistics of reading, (5) the decoding process, (6) psycholinguistic universals in the reading process, (7) universal features in the reading process, (8) what researchers know about reading, (9) miscues as windows on the reading process, (10) theory and reality of miscue analysis in reading, (11) a linguistic study of cues and miscues in reading, (12) analysis of oral reading miscues as applied psycholinguistics, (13) influences of the visual peripheral field, (14) learning about psycholinguistic processes by analyzing oral reading (with Yetta Goodman), and (15) linguistically sound research in reading. A final chapter by Brian Cambourne evaluates the Goodman reading model. The appendix contains the Goodman Taxonomy of Reading Miscues. (Hth)

On reading by Kenneth S Goodman( Book )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding is a science. Ken Goodman's research isn't the laboratory rats-and-pigeon kind, however. He uses the miscues of real readers reading real texts to inform how about how language works and what strategies developing and fluent readers use. His purpose in this book is to examine that knowledge with teachers so they can understand more precisely what it is their students are learning to do and how best to help them. Goodman's sensible, straightforward look at how reading works as a process makes this book, like his earlier Phonics Phacts, a must for every teacher and interested parent

Reading process and program by Kenneth S Goodman( Book )

7 editions published between 1970 and 1975 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Broad and major concerns dealing with reading are set forth in this monograph to provoke discussion and examination by both researchers and practitioners. In Part 1, Kenneth S. Goodman presents a psycholinguistic view of language and reading (within a transformational-generative framework) as essentially a set of processes of recoding, decoding, and encoding leading to comprehension--the real objective of reading. A model of the reading process is included, plus four diagrams showing processes in spoken language, early reading, proficient reading, and oral reading. In Part 2, Olive S. Miles focuses on the framework for a secondary school reading program: appropriate climates for reading, development of curriculum, recent trends, evaluation of organizational structure, teacher selection and preparation, and materials--library materials, content area materials, and reading instruction skills materials.

Report card on basal readers by Kenneth S Goodman( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the nature of the modern basal reader, its economics, and use. First, the report provides a history showing how the confluence of business principles, positivistic science, and behavioral psychology led to the transformation of reading textbooks into basal readers. Next, the report examines objectives and subjective factors which maintain the dominance in American reading instruction of a small number of very large publishers through their basal readers. The economics and ethics of marketing basals are also examined in the report. Then, the process of producing basals is described, drawing on investigative reporting. That leads to an examination of contemporary basals using a descriptive instrument. Finally, the report offers recommendations for progress in reading instruction within and without the basals. Eight pages of references conclude the report. (Ms)

Reading in the bilingual classroom : literacy and biliteracy by Kenneth S Goodman( Book )

9 editions published between 1978 and 1984 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The issues of reading in bilingual education are examined with a primary focus on the contemporary classroom in the United States. Within bilinqual education, concern for reading has seldom reflected current research and theory, and little research has focused on reading within bilingual programs. In addition to focusing on the specifics of the classroom, issues are discussed in the context of human language and language use now and in the past. The development of literacy in multilingual countries must be based on understanding of linguistic realities in specific locations and must be in tune with political, economic, and cultural realities. The range of possibilities in the school's responses to bilingual or multilingual realities and the kind of literacy program each alternative requires are presented. The series of alternatives focus on maintenance, transitional, and English as a second language programs. Three common assumptions that have dominated curricular suggestions in bilingual literacy programs are discussed, and the range of ways to attend to reading issues in schools with bilingual pupils are examined. Teaching methods, instructional materials, and program evaluation for reading instruction in a bilingual, biliterate curriculum are covered. A list of references and information sources for bilingual bicultural materials is included. (Sw)
Reading in Asian languages : making sense of written texts in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean by Kenneth S Goodman( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reading in Asian Languages is rich with information about how literacy works in the non-alphabetic writing systems (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) used by hundreds of millions of people and refutes the common Western belief that such systems are hard to learn or to use. The contributors share a comprehensive view of reading as construction of meaning which they show is fully applicable to character-based reading. The book explains how and why non-alphabetic writing works well for its users; provides explanations for why it is no more difficult for children to learn than are alphabetic writing systems where they are used; and demonstrates in a number of ways that there is a single process of making sense of written language regardless of the orthography. Unique in its perspective and offering practical theory-based methodology for the teaching of literacy in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean to first and second language learners, it is a useful resource for teachers of increasingly popular courses in these languages in North America as well as for teachers and researchers in Asia. It will stimulate innovation in both research and instruction."--Publisher's website
