Reading instruction involves a broad range of skills. While all students would not necessarily need instruction in all the skills, there are some who will. Therefore, research studies dealing with any facet of this area would be beneficial. These reading skills might include those of: improving vocabulary skills; reading simple graphs; analyzing simple paragraphs; learning study skills, learning to read critically; learning to use reference books; learning to outline; learning to take lecture notes; improving rate of reading. To exemplify, a comparison study of methods in teaching vocabulary would be an interesting and helpful study. An experimental class might study vocabulary utilizing word analysis skills, dictionary skills, contextual clues, and mnemonic devices. The control class could stress memorization of words and drill in the use of words.
