A Holistic Approach to Language Literacy.
Boloz, Sigmund A.
Noting that a gap exists between desired and actual literacy levels in the United States, this paper argues that the issue of literacy should be addressed holistically. Proposing that the communication skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking are integrated and support each other, the paper reviews research indicating the interrelationships among the skills and advocating the language experience approach as an effective, holistic way of developing these interrelationships.
