Cross-cultural perspectives on reading and reading research : includes selected papers from the Sixth World Congress on Reading, Singapore, August 17-19, 1976 by Singapore) World Congress on Reading (6th : 1976 : Singapore( Book )

15 editions published between 1978 and 1991 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reading research studies presented in this volume address questions that incorporate more than one culture, language, or writing system, illustrate a broad conceptualization of the study of reading, and represent the expanding international consciousness and program of the International Reading Association. Part one offers the following examples of cross-cultural research in reading: reading competency as a predictor of scholastic performance in industrialized and Third World nations; cloze procedure and comprehension in three languages; reading achievement among three racial groups; the relationship between sex difference and reading ability in an Israeli kubbitz system; syntax and readability for esl students in Thailand; the image of foreign born persons as conveyed in recent American children's literature; and a comparison of realistic contemporary fiction by non-American and American authors for intermediate age children. Part two presents general principles of comparative reading, discusses various reading processes involved in the teaching of reading in Swedish, Chinese, and English, and relates the results of an international survey on adult semiliterates. The final part of the volume discusses some of the issues involved in cross cultural cooperation. (Mai)

Social interaction in heterogeneous pre-school in Israel by Dina Feitelson( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 2-year-project with 48 disadvantaged (d) and 48 middle class (p) Israeli 2-year-olds was set up to study how heterogeneous or homogeneous grouping influences social interaction. Twenty-four D's were the homogeneous group, 48 P's and 24 D's were equally divided into three heterogeneous groups with a ratio of 2:1. This report is based on an analysis of narrative records of subjects during 1-hour free play observations. The records were first divided into Social Interaction Units (SIU's). SIU's were then classified into seven categories, and the percentage of SIU's of each child in any one of the categories and with any type of possible interactee (adult, d child, p child) computed. The overall amount of social interactions increased more for the heterogeneous D's than for the homogeneous D'S. However, both heterogeneous D's as well as P's interacted more within their own group than with each other, despite the 2:1 ratio of P's to D's in each group which should have favored interaction with P's by the heterogeneous D'S. Moreover, the homogeneous D's (like the P's) developed a better ability to cooperate with peers while the heterogeneous D's remained very dependent on adults. (Author)
