Whole Language in the Elementary School. Focused Access to Selected Topics (FAST) Bib No. 67.
Johns, Jerry; And Others
After defining whole language as a philosophy of literacy instruction based on the concept that students need to experience language as an integrated whole, this ERIC "FAST Bib" presents an annotated list of 35 ERIC documents and journal articles consisting of critiques of and responses to the whole language approach in the elementary school. The materials, which were published between 1988 and 1992, are divided into six sections: (1) Overview; (2) Critiques; (3) Recent Research; (4) Elementary Applications; (5) Applications to Special Populations; and (6) Teachers' Roles. Some related publications are also cited at the end of the document. (RS)
