Stanford E. Taylor, S. Jay Samuels, "Exploring Silent Reading Fluency: Its Nature and Development"
2011 | ISBN: 0398086761 | 182 pages | PDF | 4,3 MB

It is the goal of this book to provide unique and helpful information to reading and curriculum specialists who are looking for ways to improve the silent reading proficiency of their students. While the background information is, at times, somewhat technical, the recommendations as to the skill areas that require improvement as well as the computer techniques that can produce this improvement will prove extremely helpful in planning for a more comprehensive reading proficiency course of instruction.

Especially helpful should be the information revealed through eye-movement recordings about the many subliminal factors involved in the process of reading, as well as the changes produced by today’s web-based computer techniques to modify the basic visual/functional, perceptual, and information processing skills that comprise the silent reading process.

Classroom teachers may be particularly interested in the chapters that describe what has and can be done in classrooms and labs to improve silent reading proficiency.
The purpose of this book is multifaceted. It discusses the complexity of the reading process and calls attention to the fact that some of the more basic visual/functional, perceptual, and information processing skills that constitute proficient reading are not addressed in most core or basal reading programs today.
