This collection of 20 papers, initially presented at the International Reading Association convention in Anaheim in May 1970, is aimed both at those preparing to teach and those actively teaching. Part 1, Basic Reading Skills: Methods and Content, has three articles on word recognition skills, each aimed at different grade levels, followed by articles on comprehension, content subjects, and reading and listening. Part 2, Procedures and Approaches, has one group of articles concerned with classroom procedures (relevancy, questioning, and modalities for learning) and another group of articles dealing with specific approaches to reading (film usage, the programed approach, and the conventional approach). Part 3, Teacher Improvement in Reading, opens with four articles concerned with the improvement of classroom teachers--one on the role of the teacher, one analyzing teacher effectiveness, one dealing with the changing of teacher behavior, and one concerned with factors contributing to teacher success. Next is a group of four articles offering innovative ideas concerning preservice preparation of teachers. Also included is an article on the use of paraprofessionals as reading aides. Tables and references for some presentations are included. (This document previously announced as ed 051 969.) (vj)
