The Language Experience Approach for the Culturally Disadvantaged.
This review on the language experience approach to reading instruction for the culturally disadvantaged is one of the reading information series, designed to review the past, assess the present, and predict the future of reading education. The target audience are those with specific professional interests and needs: researchers, professors, and doctoral students. The first section reviews past research reviews and outstanding research studies. Then a synthesis is worked out by examining the research from a critical viewpoint, assessing knowledge, and considering limitations in both coverage and research methodology. Topics treated in the synthesis section are achievement, readiness, creative writing, spelling, oral language development, student attitudes, teacher attitudes, and research methodology. The third section makes recommendations and points out particular needs in the area for future research. A bibliography is included. (AW)
