Does It Matter Which Initial Reading Approach Is Used?
Hartlage, Lawrence C.

Significant differences between the three groups of children were found in the posttest scores: a special alphabet approach produced highest scores; a phonetic approach, next highest; and a look-say approach produced lowest scores.
