The Importance of Attending Behaviour in Learning to Read by C. B. J Harper( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
A survey of research indicates that a high correlation exists between the attending behavior of beginning readers and their ability to learn to read. Level of attention can be associated with ability to ignore unrelated stimuli, interest in the reading material, perceptual problems, and the sex of the reader. It is suggested that sex differences in attending behavior may be a result of the content of reading materials in the primary grades; that is, girls' higher performance is due to their greater interest in what is usually female-oriented subject matter. Teachers should therefore take care to provide material which interests both sexes and should encourage reading tasks which necessitate active attention. They should utilize a multisensory approach when appropriate, teach attending skills prior to formal reading instruction, and become aware of possible distracting influences and perceptual problems.

Attend to Read by C. B. J Harper( Book )
1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Recent research indicates the centrality of "attending" as a variable in reading acquisition. Attending is, in fact, more important than such traditionally accepted influences as intelligence, cognitive style, attitudes, and language background. Differences in attending behavior, which are molded through match and mismatch of expectations with reality, through maternal direction, through book experience, and through television viewing, related causatively to reading performance. Distractions within the child, within the reading, and within the classroom environment can militate against appropriate attending. Teachers must be aware of the factors which influence attending behavior, in order to combat reading failure. (Author/KS)
